January 1st – New Year’s Day
“All is quiet on New Year’s Day” … U2 were right – the morning starts off with a deathly quiet. Mainly due to the revels of the night before. Nobody remembers that this is the “Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord Jesus Christ”. As in Roman times this was also was the feast of Janus, the two-faced god of doors and openings. Why not visit the ancient Janus-like figures on Boa Island. You’ll be most likely the only person there.”
Boa Island (Irish: Inis Badhbha meaning “Badb’s” or “Badhbha’s Island”) is an island located near the north shore of Lower Lough Erne, in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It is 25 kilometres (15.5 mi) from Enniskillen town.
