Burial Grounds

The very old churches and monasteries and abbeys that have been turned into burial grounds absolutely fascinated me. I wanted to stop at all of them, but eventually the kids insisted I had seen enough. They were probably right.

I don’t know what this place is called, but it’s a very old church not far from the Cliffs of Moher. Many of the gravestones were so old they were unreadable. It’s right on water and the closer you get to the water (and outside the church grounds), the newer the graves. Inside the church appeared to be the oldest ones.
