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.
