St. Luke’s Church, Douglas

St. Luke's Church, Douglas

St Luke’s Church and Graveyard in Douglas. I have a few memories of this church from the early eighties. A man named Mr Good lived in the gate house nearby and I visited there once with my mother. I remember it because he had a kaleidoscope that fascinated me. It was the first time I’d seen such a wondrous device! Probably in 1979, or 1980, the shed next door became a class room for some time and I remember sitting at a desk looking around at other kids.

I haven’t visited the graveyard since, but I’d like to go back for a wander around.

The sun sets on Ardmore Roundtower & Graveyard

Sun sets on Ardmore Roundtower Graveyard

We visited the graveyard adjoining the ruins of St. Declan’s Cathedral on our trip to Ardmore. The view from there out to sea and over the local town and beach is glorious!

The first time I visited here in 2005 I slipped while taking photos, my camera hit the ground hard and something broke inside it. Luckily I didn’t drop my camera this time, even though I did slip again. Only my leg was hurt but I kept my balance and stayed upright.

I found an informative walk through video made in the graveyard you should watch.
