                                                                                                                                                                 The building (Church of Ireland/Anglican) is now long-defunct. The cemetery has a number of interesting items from the past, including what appears to be scant remains of a pre-Reformation church.  Lots of Bluebells in the area just now!

Location: next entrance (a tree-lined avenue) apast Kilheffernan roundabout, before Magners, on Carrick to Clonmel road. 

 Apart from the chancel floor tiles, there is nothing else of interest within the ruins, except a memorial on the east wall, now almost completely covered in ivy. In the past, I managed to transcribe the wording on it, which is now somewhere on my Flickr site (address under masthead above).

Lough Derg

 A 'grab shot' due to the speed of the  boat.  No time to focus, check the aperture, etc!

 Growing in abundance by this roadside stream, apast Tower Hill cottages,  these Ranunculi ficaria, aka Pileworth, open fully only in bright sunshine.  An tainm as Gaeilge = Grán arcáin. Checking the number of petals is important, when identifying them.

Easter Sunday 2021

Few people around due to Covid-19, but Malcomson Square was brightened up with                            Tulips go-leór!

 Nearby stood a copy of the 1916 Proclamation of Independence, with the Tricolour flying overhead in memory of those who died in the Rebellion.




 Associated with St. Cathaldus (Cathal), who set out from here on a mission to Europe, ending up in Taranto, Italy; also, the burial place of the martyred Fr. Sheehy.
