Annaghdown Cathedral, County Galway

Past wasting weeds
And wasted youth
The stones of life gone by
Lies silent & forlorn
A church bereft of prayer
Where once knelt those pious few
A gift awaits you there.
— Claire Loader

Hardly more than the size of a small shed, it's not difficult to pass this little gem by without a second glance. Yet whether by chance or grand design, the rain has barely managed to even touch what is one of the most beautifully carved windows in Ireland.
