Known locally as “The Abbey”, this ruin was a Franciscan friary that operated from the 1400s to 1796 when the last friar died. In the background you can see the Baltimore Beacon.

Out in the wilds of Co Cork, to the north of Bantry I found an old deserted farm. The house looked like it had been empty for some time and some of the out buildings were in worse repair.
Don’t forget the photowalk on Sunday!
The Atlantic Manor Hotel stood for many a year at Garrettstown in Co. Cork and is even still listed on a travel website but it is gone now. Ryan visited there a while back and took some great interior shots of the decaying ruins before they disappeared.
A JCB operator was clearing up some of the rubble when we happened to drive past last year and as luck would have it, I only had my wide angle lens so I was limited in what I could shoot unfortunately. It does force you to learn a new discipline and work with what you have though.
We drove past there recently and all that remains is barren wasteland. People still have their memories.
Jacinta and Adam are possibly coming home today. I’m very happy (and tired!)
An old and empty phone booth lies neglected. Notice the lock and bolt on the door? I get the feeling this booth hasn’t contained a phone in a long time..
This is the other side of the window pictured yesterday in the mystery hospital.
