Kilcoe Churchyard

Kilcoe Churchyard

Kilcoe 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.
