Nor was there time or distance: only much later when bird and beast mastered the seasons would Man learn to calculate exactitude, chart the passage of his bloody and woe-begotten history. But in the gloomy Pre-Cambrian Period there was nothing.Yet we must start somewhere! A tale must begin in its chosen land as people are born to their own civilisation.

Accordingly, modern Ireland began her lengthy embryonic cycle during the Palaeozoic Era. Lasting some 600-225 million years BC, for over 300 million years the 32,000 square mile island lay beneath the sea- after the Lower Palaeozoic Era remains of animal and plant life were preserved in thickening sediment. During this blanketing underground temperature rose and many coastal regions suffered from volcanic activity: clay particles combined to form sedimentary rock- under great pressure, sand and shale produced sandstone- molten material enhanced soil fertility later to be enjoyed by Wexford barley farmers.So, as the Irish foetus emerged from the eras, periods and epochs of evolution, she was sculpted with such magnificence men were enchanted by her umbilical tangle of mountains, labyrinthine valleys, rivers spawned from primeval ages of heat, ice and turbulence.

When the land was grassed and animals roamed abroad, fish proliferated the waters, all that remained to complete the great birthing was Man to make a belated but violent entrance, along with his religion and politics to sully all that went before.
