Round Tower in Cloyne

Round Tower in Cloyne

In the town of Cloyne in East Cork, there is an old round tower dating back to about 560 A.D. when St. Colman founded a monastery in the town.   The door is set very high in the tower, as you can see, but fear not, there is conveniently a ladder to help you climb up!

    Your photo made me think of the Bottle Tower in Churchtown – near our former home in Dundrum.

    Lovely old tower, Joan. We have only passed through Cloyne (on a detour as the main road to Cork city was flooded). I’ll have to spend an afternoon there soon. Wouldn’t want to be a sleepwalker living in that tower – the front door’s a bit too far from the ground.



I would love to hear what you think!
