This is a shot I took of The Old Abbey Graveyard in my home town of Donegal Town.
The ruins of this once stately complex can be found on a scenic parcel of land at the mouth of the Eske River, where it pours into Donegal Bay. Built in 1474 by Hugh O’Donnell, the abbey withstood ransacking, burning and ravaging before it was finally abandoned in the early part of the 17th century.
Known locally as “the old abbey”, the only recognizable parts of the ruins today are the south transept, choir, and parts of the cloisters. The adjoining graveyard is filled, providing evidence that people were buried here well into the 18th century.
This is a shot I took of the Church of St. Agatha, Clar, Donegal Town, County Donegal. It was built in 1871
This is a shot I took of Donegal's famous fishing town Killybegs, Donegal.
Killybegs (Irish: Na Cealla Beaga) is a town in County Donegal, Ireland. It is the largest fishing port in the county and on the island of Ireland. It is located on the south coast of the county, north of Donegal Bay, near Donegal Town. The town is situated at the head of a scenic harbour and at the base of a vast mountainous tract extending northward. In the summer, there is a street festival celebrating the fish catches and incorporating the traditional "Blessing of the Boats". It has a population of 1,297.
This is a shot I took the Sacred Heart, Mountcharles, County Donegal.
On the hill down to the pier and beaches in Mountcharles sits the Roman Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart overlooking Donegal Bay and across to the distinctive mountain profile of Benbulben in County Sligo.
In the grounds there are two Marian Shrines, one built in 1954 and the newer one to commemorate the Marian Year in 1988.
