Pilgrimage in Medieval Ireland

To date my research has concentrated on the history and archaeology of pilgrimage in early and late medieval Ireland. In 2010 I completed a PhD thesis 'Pilgrimage in Medieval Ireland AD 600-1600'. I am also very interested in pilgrim roads and routeways as well in pilgrim souvenirs and burials in Ireland and the rest of Europe. Recently I have begun to record modern pilgrimages at holy wells in Ireland.
