The Seven Churches Ruins On Inis Mor
Photograph - Photo
There were quite a few stormy days during my time on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands. But one day in the midst of it was perfect for seeing the sights on offer.
And one of the places that lingers with me still is this little ramshackle cemetery. These ruins are known as Na Seacht dTeampaill in Gelic Irish or The Seven Churches. They are the remains of ancient monastery, but as ancient hallowed ground, it's still a place in demand for burials. That explains why it appears every square inch of the grounds are covered in graves. And it was as crowded as it appears, I assure you!
I love the cool winter blue skies in such contrast to the green grass in the foreground. And the way that grass clings to every chance it has to eek out a place to grow. Such a statement of life on our world.
