** Aisling is shown to be frightened of the monastery's cross in the courtyard and is unable to enter the tower where Brendan is. Fitting, since she's a fairy and her people are slowly being pushed out and forgotten as Christianity spreads across Ireland. Fairies in Irish folklore were also unable to enter buildings unless specifically invited, thus the use of Pangur Ban to free Brendan from the basement.

* AwesomeArt
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The entire soundtrack is great, courtesy of composer Bruno Coulais and Irish band Kila, but Aisling's Song is particularly noteworthy and regarded by some as the film's high point.

* AwesomeArt
AwesomeArt: The entire film is full of beautiful art that at first seems simplistic, but actually has a lot of details when you look closely...much like the art in the Book of Kells itself.

* ShownTheirWork: Played with. The first ink Brendan is sent out to gather materials from is based on a [[http://web.ceu.hu/medstud/manual/MMM/ink.html real medieval recipe]] for gall ink; the "berries" are actually used cocoons for a type of wasp. But the resulting ink is [[ArtisticLicense actually black]].

** It's the opening line of the Lord's Prayer in Irish: "Ár nAthair atá ar neamh...". The subtitles on the UK DVD just say ''[Prays in Irish]''.
