Abbey Graveyard

in Donegal Town and viewed from the Bank Walk across Donegal Bay.

The ruins of this once stately complex can be found on a scenic parcel of land at the mouth of the Eske River, where it pours into Donegal Bay. Built in 1474 by Hugh O'Donnell, the abbey withstood ransacking, burning and ravaging before it was finally abandoned in the early part of the 17th century. Known locally as "the old abbey", the only recognizable parts of the ruins today are the south transept, choir, and parts of the cloisters. The adjoining graveyard is filled, providing evidence that people were buried here well into the 18th century.

Ms Deutschland

visited Killybegs yesterday with 530 passengers and 220 crew members.   I’m surprised that the ship had that many people on it.  The cruise ship looked a lot smaller from the ones I normally seen at other places.   It left around 7pm and is now headed to Galway.  The ship was here for ten hours and it was rainy and foggy most of the day.
