Y * greeting from Poland, Peter contest
Thank you, Peter! You can see by the man standing next to the tower, how big it is. The doorway is about 2.5 metres off the ground and reached by a ladder. Once inside, the priests would pull the ladder inside and lock the door and no enemy could enter. The top window is the watchtower window.
So you already were in Ireland! This shot couldn't have been taken anywhere else.... Greetings, Dick
Yes, Dick, and I replied to this comment on one of your lovely Irish photos, hope you check my Irish pics sometime. Cheers! Theolfa.
Interesting how the priests defended themselves. One would think they were almost immortal if the graveyard wasn't there.
I wonder how they built those very tall round towers. There were no cranes and other mechanical devices to help the builders, and no leaning towers, either. The most famous one is the Rock of Cashel.
Merci, Domi Theolfa
