Chapel of the Mothers

       "Now it is the Chapel of the Mothers, used for initiations. Its barrel vaulted roof serves to represent the womb. Facing the door is the Great Mother, in a modernistic style, and on the wall to its right is a West African Mother Goddess mask. This Chapel also, contains many animal, vegetable and mineral figures made by members, representing the realms of Nature in the Great Mother's womb." (From the "Guide to Clonegal Castle" by Lawrence Durdin-Robertson.)

       The Cave of the Mothers is dedicated to the element of Earth and contains the shrines of Coatlicue and the Goddess of the Animals.
