Something worth sharing, I trust.
I've attached a small jpg, reducing its size as best I could, that shows
sunrise as viewed from Dublin on May 1st, 433. It is a lovely view, with the
five visible planets and a waning 25% crescent moon, at the moment the sun
appears on the horizon. You can have a look yourself using the free program
available at http://www.cybersky.com/
There may be, actually darn well probably is, a link between this
astronomical beauty and the feast held by Laoghaire that year. This is the
same year in which Patrick lit the usurping Paschal fires.
Something to get the imagination going, and the thinking cap on! :)
