This week, I paid our deposit for Mike and I to travel to Ireland in 2013 with our favorite Irish band, FinTan. So Ireland is on my mind right now, and I decided to go back through some of my photos from the 2009 trip (also with the band).

This photo from Glendalough has been on my work computer desktop for more than a year. If you look carefully through the remains of the gate, you can see a grave marker topped with a Celtic cross in the distance.

These three tombstones have stood at Glendalough for over a century.


This detail photograph of a Celtic cross is probably one of my favorites from the trip.

This moss-covered sarcophagus monument is in the cemetery that sits just below the crest of the Hill of Tara.

This statue is part of a memorial in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.
