Churchyard, Glendalough, Wicklow, Ireland

church glendalough irelandAs we strolled around the Upper Lake at Glendalough National Park in County Wicklow, Ireland, signs led us to the ruins of this small Romanesque church tucked back in a small grove. According to the sign, it was the Reefert Church. Reefert means “Royal Burial Site,” and this churchyard was the burial site of the chiefs of the local clan, the O'Tooles.

  1. Loved your photo of Reefeart church Glendalough, and all the good stuff you are doing.
    I am a poet who lives near Glendalough – I give guided walks there – a mix of history,
    folklore and interesting stuff with a few relevant poems thrown in.

    If you or your friends are ever near Glendalough – say ‘Hello’
