Religion, Revolution, Rights and Wrongs.
Every county in Ireland shares remnants of a shared, troubled history. I stumbled across this 17th century friary in a town called Claregalway last week.
One of the last residents of note is immortalised on a plaque within the ruins reading:
Whosoever you may be who should pass by,
stop, read thoroughly, mourn.
I am what you shall be and I was what you are.
I entreat that you pray for me,
F(ather) M(artin) B(lake). O(rder) (of) S(t). F(rancis)”.
You should never get bored travelling about this historic island.
