More tigers, but not as nature intended...

These sadly deflated creatures adorned the hall of Glencairn Abbey, Tallow, Co. Waterford.

 

The Abbey is now known as St. Mary's Abbey and is occupied by the only community of Cistercian nuns in Ireland. I would imagine that the tiger skins are long gone...

 

Date: Thursday, 3 February 1916
