Clonmacnoise Monastery

DSC_3610 as Smart Object-1

Things don’t always go according to plan.  Sometimes, when you are driving cross country, you have just a little window to try to visit somewhere special.  Sometimes schedules posted online are not the same as the actual hours open when you pull up into the drive.  Sometimes you would have been perfectly willing to pay an entrance fee, but there was no one there to take it.  So sometimes, you make a split second decision to take a stroll through a nearby cow pasture, use an ancient step stile built into a stone wall to hop over, and have just a little look, because it’s so so beautiful and so unlike anything you’ve ever been, and this is your only chance.
