The Church Graveyard

Parish

Graveyard2

I went back for a second snapshot:)

Church

It was a cold and blustery Wednesday afternoon on New Years Eve .The weather didn’t stop me from getting outside and exploring the seaside village and meeting some of the shop owners.

Today, I spent most of the day snapping photographs in Downtown Donaghadee  and wanted to share some with you:)  The photograph is of Donaghadee Parish church… Tall iron clad gates surrounded the property… they where surprisingly unlocked.Some of the graves dated back to the 17th century~

I did some research when I got back and found out the stone tower was built in 1833.  the history of the parish really interesting and have provided a link if you would like to check it out. The building was built in 1626 AD .. part of the lower tower is thought to be dated back to the medieval period. St. Patrick was even a visitor to the site grounds and landed nearby. It was such a great place to visit and if you ever get a chance make a stop to the costal village Donaghadee.

I’ve included both the original and the edited photograph:)

Let me know which one you like the best..

Enjoy!
