The photo featured on the banner for this blog (and on my website) was taken by my husband at the Poison Glen in Donegal, Ireland.

The name in English stems from an unfortunate mistranslation of the original name in Irish (Gaelic), Gleann Nemhe, which means Heavenly Glen. The word for heaven (nemhe) in Irish and the word for poison (neimhe) look and sound nearly identical to non-native speakers, and were thus mixed up when the place name was translated into English.
