A little bit more colour in today’s photo than there was in yesterday’s.  I couldn’t believe my luck. No sooner had I taken the photo and climbed over the stile to get back into my car (there was a gate, but where’s the fun in using the gate….especially when you can’t undo the latch..), then the sky clouded over, the heaven’s opened and the rain began to fall.

Despite not being caught by the rain, I *still* got wet feet. Must remember the boots in future.

Today’s location:-

 

Kilcash Church

100113

 

The church is in a lovely spot, situated at the foot of the Slievenamon. If you’re in a car there’s room to pull in and park in front of the church.

A little further up the road is Kilcash Castle.  There are restorative works going on their at the moment and the castle is covered with scaffolding. I was there in August and took the photo below.  It hasn’t changed much since then.

Directions to Kilcash below.  It’s a narrow road so ‘take it handy’ as they’d say.

  1. To complete earlier posts about the Kilcash history, Youtube has recently posted a brilliant and really soulful,definitive version of the music and prose version of the Kilcash lament, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-emM6aj3wQU (The keywords if the link is not working are: Blanaid Irvine Cill Cais )
    It’s off an album of an RTE radio show from 2005. The singer is Rita Connolly, who’s well-known on the Irish ballads scene, and the poem is read in both English and Irish. By contrast, I’ve had no joy on my idea to get some oaks replanted, as yet, but will bash on.
