It was a fitting end to a great evening shooting.
This one is from a recent trip to Sligo and Leitrim over the Easter weekend. I finally got to climb Ben Bulben this time around too, I always liked that mountain since one face of it always looked like a giant slide!
Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above Glen-Car,
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star

This shrine dating to 1030 AD, held an 8th century mass-book that belonged to the monastery of Lorrha in County Tipperary. An inscription on the base of the elaborate shrine requests prayers for the 'King of Ireland'; Donnchad, Son of Brian Boru and Gormlaith. After the bloody battle of Clontarf, Donnchad became King of Munster but he never reached the heights of his father and was never generally recognised as the High King of Ireland.
The shrine was later embellished in the fourteenth century when the elaborate cross jewelled with rock crystals, glass studs and an ivory bead. This wonderful object forms part of the Clontarf Exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street. Well worth a visit!
