|Description ||These two stones are inside the churchyard at the Hill of Tara.
Obviously they pre-date the church. Strange that they allowed pagan stones to remain within their hallowed grounds?|
|The taller stone has an impressive Sheela-na-Gig carved on it.|
|It is not so strange that these stones remain in the churchyard. Christians know, as the apostle Paul wrote, "...we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one." (1 Corinthians 8:4). To us they are just rocks with an interesting history.|
|It's a good way of getting the (former) heathens to come to church!
For example, in Myra (now in modern Turkey), the church of St. Nicholas was simply built around an older temple (Greek, I think). Having the ancient columns standing in the middle of the church looks really weird.|
