Photo of the week: Corcomroe Abbey in the Burren County Clare, Ireland

Windows in Corcomroe Abbey, The Burren, County Clare, Ireland, photo by Steve Collins

Corcomroe Abbey was built in the 12th century by Domnall Mór Ua Briain, considered to be the last King of Munster, which included modern day Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford. Today, a roofless ruin, open to the sky, it’s located in that lovely, wild part of the West of Ireland called The Burren. If you are headed to the West of Ireland,  The Burren is a wonderful place to visit. Sláinte

    Missed this when we were in Ireland, but LOVED the Burren.
