Old Church in Dromavalla

The old church in Dromavalla stands in ruins today. It was originally dedicated to St. Lawrence (Cill Lorcan), Lorcan is Lawrence in Irish. It dates back to the 15th century and was part of the Agustinain Monastery of Killagh near Milltown, which is about 4 miles away.

You can see the mountains in the distance in this picture. It was a beautiful day for getting out in the rare sunshine and taking pictures. This is within walking distance of our house.

Here is an interesting headstone we found in the cemetery. Kevin especially liked this one... 

It spoke to him, with a very clear message, "That way dumb #$%!"
