Last year while in Ireland I took a number of fence photos with Good Fences in mind. This is Hore Abbey, a ruined Cistercian monastery near Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. Had I been on my own I would have hopped the fence and wandered down for a closer look.
The rest of today's fences were all spotted during an evening walk at Goungane Barra in County Cork.
The wall/fence that encloses the outdoor Stations of the Cross beside St Finbarr's Oratory.
The ornate gates that forms a fence outside Fr O'Mahony's tomb.
Away from the beautiful lake and church are reminders that we are guests in a rural area.
I've posted this photo before on Facebook but it's one of my favourites from the trip so here it is again with no apologies.
And, honestly, isn't this the most Irish stile you've ever seen? I've never seen one before that allows you to go absolutely nowhere. The fern is so thick you'd need to be an expert bushwhacker to fight your way through it.
