Photographer's Note

The roads across the Burren Uplands are narrow lanes which wind past farmland and small isolated farmsteads. Here life seems to be lived at a more leisurely pace and I got the impression of a community little changed for decades.

This shot was taken at the now derelict Carron Parish Church. Built originally in the 13th century that which remains is mainly 15th century. The churchyard is enclosed by a dry stone wall and the whole complex stands away from the road in a field where cows graze. It was evident that the churchyard is still in use, that was something I noted in all the old, decaying churches we explored; the presence of new graves. Here it seems that the ancient and more recent bridge the chasm created by the passing centuries.
