Vanishing into the Clouds

IMG_9794
Sufficiently spooky for Halloween: the spire of the former Presbyterian church in Clonakilty, County Cork. On a plot of land leased from the town’s then-owner the fourth Earl of Shannon, this dressed limestone building was completed in 1861. The tower is its most distinctive feature, the spire’s onset marked by a gargoyle at each corner. Since 1924 the site has served as Clonakilty’s post office.

  1. Good to read about the spire in Clonakilty. For me Clonakilty means Black Pudding and very good it is too.
