This Lawrence image of Kilmalkader in Dingle is one of a number taken by the indomitable Mr. French on a trip to the Kingdom. It looks pretty dilapidated at that time and one wonders how it looks today? I love his use of "Forced perspective" using the cross to highlight and dominate the church behind. He was a quare one Mr. French!

    yup, he certainly is coming over all creative and dramatic, oh with a wee touch of Photoshop contrast magic we could all be entering another kingdom. there is a wealth of groups for gravestones and graveyards

    between the three rocks, is that a small circular stone or ... a snail?

    Wiki link. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilmalkedar The sundial stone is well worth a look. No diamond tipped tools or CNC machining when that was created.

    The sundial stone should be close by to the right of frame according to this sketch by William Frazer (before 1905) - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000744009 . Has it moved?

    Apparently the sundial wasn't used to measure the hours but to mark the times when canonical prayers should be said: Dawn (Prime), Mid-morning (Terce), Noon (Sext), Mid-afternoon (None) Evening (Vespers),

    Long since gone or broken off from the hole is the gnomon/style to cast the shadow.

    Motto for a sundial, Thomas Geoffrey Wall Henslow O Time, consoler of our grief, Physician great are you, Bringing, as no one else, relief, When things seemed hopeless past belief, And pain had robbed us, like a thief, Of faith in all we knew. PS Here's one he wrote for the Kilmalkader sundial: May thy hours be long, And thy days be bright; May thy cares be few, And thy burdens light.
