Photographer's Note

These are the ruins of Cong Abbey, an augustinian abbey of 12th century. The abbey stans in the center of Cong, a small village between Lough Corrib on south and Lough Mask on north, on the frontier between County Galway and County Mayo. In 1951, Cong was the film location for famous John Ford film, The quiet man, with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Close to the village centre stands Ashford Castle, one of the most beautiful hotel in the world.
