A detail from the Moylough Belt Shrine
A detail from the Moylough Belt Shrine. Dating from the 8th century AD, the Moylough belt shrine is one of the great treasures of early Ireland. Fashioned out of bronze and silver, it was found in 1945 by Mr John Twomey as he dug turf on his father’s farm at Moylough, Co. Sligo. It is likely that the Moylough belt shrine was used to effect cures or establish truthfulness.
