Ruins of Grey Abbey, Kildare


Last week, we made a quick visit to Kildare, west of Dublin and I had just enough time to stop and take some pictures of the ruins of Grey Abbey, so called because of the grey robes worn by monks who lived here in the 16th century.

It now is the playground of crows... you might spot a few...

  9. Lovely shots Christine! Have I ever mentioned that I have ruins in my very own yard? They are only about 100 years old, and of an old gas station when the grid road that runs past my place used to be the main highway. Not nearly as interesting as the Grey Abbey, but we were pretty excited to discover anything in our own backyard. I should do a posts about it soon. Maybe when have a little more green on the trees...
    Have a lovley day,
    Andrea

  13. Oh so pretty...even if they are "ruins." We just don't have that history here in the US...again, I know if I ever visit, I'll never want to come home!
