“Glengowla Mines and working farm are steeped in history. In those days, monks often put valuable covers on their books and manuscripts, and the silver and other precious metals found here were sought after. The first miners at Glengowla were the Hodgsons from Gortevagh. Book covers were often made of metal and decorated with valuables such as jewels. The monks paid silversmiths to make gold and silver chalices. An example of these chalices is the Ardagh Chalice, which you can see in the National Museum in Dublin. The Ardagh Chalice was made in the eight century AD. Ireland is the biggest miner of lead in Europe and along with the lead found at Glengowla when mining started, there were large marble chambers and caverns studded with lead and silver pyrite and veins of calcite and quartz in addition to other precious materials. The mine is noted for its rare and beautiful octahedral crystals of fluorite and quartz. The Geoghegan family became the first owners of Glengowla after Independence and it was probably due to the Great Famine that mining started in 1850. ”
