Abbeyshrule Part II - 2013

You can view Part I of Abbeyshrule here.


 We were going to walk down along the Canal when we noticed you could walk down along a lane way. We have no idea where it brought you but I thought I might be able to get some photos of the Abbey through the trees and I was! In the photo above you can see Abbeyshrule Abbey on the left and you can also see the Inny River on the right going down through the bottom of the photo. It was the best shot I could get of both of them.


 
I zoomed in a bit closer.


Just near the end of the lane way there was some lovely trees. This was one of them.


The lane way was actually a lane to someones house! Such a beautiful place to live!


We then decided to walk over to the Abbey. On the way you walk over the Inny River Bridge.


Abbeyshrule Graveyard just beside the Abbey. Taken when I just got off the bridge. The sun was shining on just that area.


More awesome trees.


A tomb in Abbeyshrule Graveyard. You could get in but the gate was stuck in all the stones and it would have taken awhile to move them out of the way.


Along side the tomb.


Abbeyshrule Abbey.





It's always a pity when things are left to ruin but it is very very pretty.



A broken headstone. It had some pretty detail around the cross! A pity!


Inside Abbeyshrule Abbey isn't very impressive. A lot of it is closed off because its falling down. I do hope it gets fixed up. I took this photo of the archway out before we left.


Hope you enjoyed all the photos I took of Abbeyshrule! To see older photos I've take of Abbeyshrule click here and scroll down by these posts. I will visit again and get over more of the area in future.

You can view these photos here on my Facebook and my Flickr.

Abbeyshrule Part I - 2013

We visited Abbeyshrule on Saturday so I could get some photos and we could go for a walk. The weather was really unpredictable. At first it was nice and sunny and then the next minute it was pouring rain. So in some of the photos you can see its very cloudy but other times there is nice blue skies! Oh Ireland and its weather :P I will have to visit again as much as I can cos there is lots of photo opportunities. For now enjoy the photos I got this time! :)


At first it was so nice and sunny and then the next minute it poured. I took this photo of the canal standing under the bridge to get away from the rain. You can see some of the ripples in the water from the rain.


We met some nice ducks!


Only three and they were strange. Just all staring at something we couldn't see. When I got this shot they had decided to stretch their necks. Next time I have to remember to bring some bread. They get very friendly and come a lot closer when they think you have something for them!



I was standing and waiting for ages to get both of those shots above of the little house through the canal bridge. Finally the sun came out and I got the shots I wanted.


Steve watching the ducks flex :P


I wish I could have gotten closer for better detail but the green on their heads is amazing! So pretty.




There is lots of boats down along the canal. It makes it look lovely!


The Inny River Bridge taken from the canal walkway.


The other side of the canal bridge. More boats!



A lovely friendly dog we met!


Some lovely Bluebells.


Vintage Feel Bluebells.


Pretty Tulip.

I still have lots more photos of Abbeyshrule to come! Including ones of Abbeyshrule Abbey.
Keep an eye out for Part II! :D

Like always you can view them on my Flickr here and my Facebook page here.

Templepatrick Graveyard - 2012

Steve brought me to a graveyard down the fields through the mud, under electric fences, over barbed wire and through briers. I took what photos I could but it was very dull so they're not the best.







Stupid nature falling on headstones.


Look at his lovely ginger beard.


I obviously said something hilarious.




Steve has an angry with me but he's so pwetty.


My favourite picture of the day.
