    I am loving the angle you shot with the headstone and the boat both in the shot. I am going to try to find this place on our trip.

    The Graveyard is just behind Casey’s Hotel where we stayed, on the Cork side of the town. Look for the Tullagh Graveyard sign and the road right next to the hotel!

    Its almost a dooming image that makes me think that death is near and ultimately inevitable. Lots of emotions. Thanks bro!
