Photographer's Note

One of the many celtic crosses at the amazing old
village/monastery of Glendalough.


Glendalough (Irish: Gleann Dá Loch, meaning "Glen of
Two Lakes") is a village located at the site of a
monastery located in County Wicklow, Ireland. It was
founded in the 6th century by Saint Kevin, a hermit
priest, and destroyed in 1398 by English troops.

The location was sought out as a peaceful retreat by
Saint Kevin because of its remoteness and serenity, but
several men who wished to follow his teachings built a
temporary place of churches and living quarters in the
valley below the site of his house. This soon grew and
became an important school. The remains of the
monastery are located beside the Lower Lake and the Upper Lake.

The monastic site includes a 33 metres tall round tower
and Saint Kevin's Cross, a Celtic High Cross. The
round tower was built during the era of the Viking
invasions into Ireland (up to and around 1066), in
order to protect the religious books and chalices used
around the monastery at the time.
