CELTIC PRAYER BOOK FOR 2007
This is the book of CELTIC PRAYERS, READINGS AND REFLECTIONS which was produced for Keeills Week in 2007. Material from this was used during the times of worship at the keeills during PRAYING THE KEEILLS WEEK but we hope you will find it useful at any time, for your own times of quiet and reflection.

SPOOYT VANE - THE POEM
We were very pleased that John 'Dog' Callister joined us for the evening walk to St Patrick's Keeill during the 2006 Keeills Week, during which he read his poem 'Spooyt Vane'
After hearing it, a number of walkers asked how they could get a copy of the poem and we're grateful to John for allowing us to add his sensitive and evocative poem to our website. Read and download SPOOYT VANE by John 'Dog' Callister here.Download
