Photographer's Note

Pictured here is another view of Clonmacnoise on the banks of the River Shannon in County Offaly in Irelands midlands.

Visible in this scene are a few different buildings from my post of this place yesterday. From left to right here, we can see Temple Finian (the tall tower with conical roof), in the centre is temple Connor, temple Kelly and the Cathedral, although its hard to see them as separate buildings because they are in sihoutte, and to the far right the tallest tower is O Rourkes tower.

Also visible in silhouette is a number of the hundreds of grave monuments which dot this place.

The site at Clonmacnoise traces its history back to the 6th century when it was founded by St Ciaran. For a more detailed history of this place, please see the note on my previous picture here :

This view is taken standing at the banks of the river, looking south.

Thanks for looking!
