On our way from Galway to Dublin we stopped Clonmacnoise, which is one of Ireland’s most important monastic sites. It is situated on the banks of the Shannon River. The monastery was founded in AD 545 by St Kieran and was the burial place of the Kings of Connuaght and Tara. Among the older surviving buildings of the complex are the shell of a small cathedral, two round towers, the remains of eight smaller churches and several high crosses.
This was the last of my photographs taken with blue sky as it rained for the remainder of our Irish journey in Dublin.
