St Fiachra's Garden is found at the center of Irish National Stud. It was named after the patron saint of gardeners, St. Fiachra (St. Fiacre).
|Waterfall at St. Fiachra's Garden, In Front of the Monastic Cells|
|Water, trees and shrub surround it.|
|In front of the waterfall is the Monastic Cells made of limestone.|
The dome-shaped chamber is also the home of crystal sculpture, which originated in Waterford. (Waterford is the famous place where high caliber crystals are made. I also been there and will tell you about it in my future blog post.)
St. Fiachra was born in Ireland on 6th century. He had an intense knowledge of medicinal plants that lead him to cure illness like hemorrhoids and venereal diseases. That’s why he also became the patron of venereal disease sufferers and patron of medicine.
