Description: Slide 48: one of a collection of lantern slides shown at Clondalkin branch library c 1910. Description given in booklet: Leaving the desolate and picturesque convent, we cross the plain in a westerly direction, and arrive at the site of the ancient Gilgal. Here the first camp in the promised land was pitched; here the covenant with God was renewed by the celebration of the passover; here the manna ceased. It is not to be wondered at that something of sanctity should attach to a spot hallowed with such memories and associations as these, and after ages the people still assemble to offer sacrifices on the ground so memorable in their history.
