Walking on the old path

Ireland , on the way to the airport , all packed but still one more picture ( there is never only one with me ) . Cold January morning with bit of frost all over. I like nature but I love when it's all intertwined with our human history . It makes a connection , maybe dust will go back to dust , maybe all our “stuff “ is going to be recycled but when I was a kid I wanted to be an archaeologist.

 

Ruins of the old cementer's St Mary church in the Village of Innishannon (Inis Eonaín in Gaelic), County Cork. The old church was built 1475 after Pope Sixtus decreed that a local landowner, Cormac Mc Carthy, be granted a licence to erect a place of worship dedicated to St Mary. It was dismantled in 1856 when a new church was built on the main street.
