A very quick post.
My wife and myself were on a tour today with our local History/Heritage and Archaeology group.
While I was going through a few photos, just now, I spotted one which wasn’t planned but, only upon seeing it now, I think it has a message of some sort.
I was acting the maggot pretending to try straighten up the high cross. Look at the sky. Is the Lord hard at work against the dark side? Or is it a sign of rain?
This is the site of one of the first monasteries in Ireland. At first glance all that remain are two large crosses. Here is a feature from the website of my local club. It tells of a recent excavation. http://www.buncranahistory.com/wordpress/?p=976
If you are not into ancient history I understand. Personally I find it facinating, especially pre-Christian times, how they lived, thought and died.
I try to spend lots of days in places like this. Roll on summer!
Thank you for reading,
Here are some more from other places today.
