As we drove on the Beara Pennisula we came upon the ruins of Kilcatherine Church. This site is the resting place of generations of families in the area. Some of the graves are marked by large monuments. Others are very modest… and likely some are not marked at all.

The ruins of Kilcatherine Church date back hundreds of years… perhaps more.  I was unable to find any reference on its exact age.

One cannot help but feel the history while exploring the ruins.

I imagined the people who toiled during its construction in this out-of-way part of Ireland.

The ruins of Kilcatherine Church are located close to Ballycrovane Harbour, west off of R571.

The site overlooks a beautiful bay.

As is often the case in Ireland, strong winds blew in some inclement weather and it was time to move on to the next stop along our journey.
