Children of a lesser god


Oliver McKeown‘s beautiful photos of the Celtic god Manannán mac Lír on Binevenagh mountain, near Limavady. It was created by Dungannon’s Darren John Sutton, who also created pieces for Game Of Thrones. Obviously the Nordie Christian Militia felt it was time they got their own moving statue, as it has been nicked.

Those who made off with the statue left a wooden cross with the words, ‘You shall have no other gods before me’ in its place.

Lower case m? Somebody didn’t go to Sunday school.
