Clonmacnoise Monastic Site, Ireland


Claudia Busse sent me this awesome postcard with dolphin stamp for the WiP July General swap. On the back it says: Clonmacnoise is an early Christian site founded by St. Clarán in the mid-6th-century on the eastern bank of the River Shannon. The site includes the ruins of a cathedral, seven churches (10th - 13th century) two round towers, three high crosses and the largest collection of Early Christian gravestones in Western Europe.
