A Regal moat for Naas of the Kings

Nás na Rí or Naas of the Kings in the background and “The Moat” in the foreground. This has all changed utterly, though the key features are likely still there? Welcome to yet another week of lockdown, isolation, and cocooning :-)


+++ UPDATE +++

We’ll hold fire on pronouncing a definite date for this photograph, but certainly we’ve narrowed down the date from 1865-1914, to after 1903. Completely off topic, but thank you to Mike for the belly laugh he provided about fake IDs for the over-70s.
