Fadden More Psalter on display in Dublin

In 2006, a group of turf cutters working in a bog in Tipperary discovered a vellum and leather psalter dating to the 9th century. Now, for the first time, the public will have the opportunity to see the Fadden More Psalter now on display at the National Museum in Dublin.

Experts have been working to clean and repair the tattered book of psalms since its discovery. Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan, who opened the exhibition, said it spanned “an outstanding period” of the country's history, “our golden age”.
