Photographer's Note

Just 5 km from the town of Gort (co. Galway) in Kilmacduagh lies the remains of a 7th century church with a tower dating from the 10th century. This Monastery was plundered in the 13th century.
The monks used this towers as a watchtower and place of refuge during Viking raids .The doorway (about 7 meters above the ground) was only contactable with a ladder and during a raid ,the monks would pull the ladder into the tower after them
