When I visited Clonmacnoise, the weather changed rapidly. Here, I got a shot of the surroundings, just a moment before rain started pouring down.
Fortunately, the AV-show was interesting and the rain had disappeared when we came outside again.

Its setting makes Clonmacnoise a very special photoopportunity.
However, the heritage Centre is also well worth a visit - the original, invaluable stone carvings from the monastery are preserved here and presented in an almost magical light.
The audiovisual about the history of Clonmacnoise is also quite interesting.

While the monastery is no longer active, the cemetary of Clonmacnoise is still in use nowadays.

Clonmacnoise

Clonmacnoise
Clonmacnoise was founded by St. Ciaran about 1500 years ago.
Although the monastery itself was destroyed by the English, it is still regarded as a place of high religious significance - and also is a major tourist attraction.
I especially like the beautiful setting.
