Chris O'Dell Photographs
is a townland (parish) in West Cork, on the north side of Roaringwater
Bay. There is no village, but there is a castle, some scattered
dwelling houses, a long, sheltered coastline, a few kilometers of
narrow winding lanes, and an overwhelming feeling of peace and
quiet. There is a tiny church, derelict, as many of them are
around here, but the churchyard is still in use as a burial ground,
where local people can be laid to rest with the sea and the wind for
company. Macdonald is an unusual name to discover in a Catholic
West Cork churchyard, there are plenty of O'Sullivans and McCarthys at
home here. Rest in Peace, Mary, we may never know how old you
were when you left us. Your iron celtic cross, no doubt made by
the local blacksmith, will defy the elements for many years to come.
Camera: Canon G9 modified for Infra-red.
