Abandoned

On a recent walk around the Lakes of Killarney, we came across this old abandoned ruin, of what was once a fairly imposing stone buiilding, maybe it once was a hunting or fishing lodge for the gentry, on the shores of the lake, with a very scenic outlook.  Now the bushes and ivy have taken up residence there.

Even the doorway is a bit of a challenge, not even suitable for Norm’s Thursday Doors, but check out more textures over at Narami’s blog.

This old door is part of an old abandoned house we came across in Millstreet, County Cork, last weekend.   The place is on the main street, but it looks like no one has lived there or taken care of it, for a long time.     I do like the glass on the door though, which you can see in more details in the photo below.

Have a look on Norm’s page for more doors

Abandoned Architecture :

No matter where you travel to in Ireland, you are bound to find old ruins.   This is partly due to the fact that the country has been around for many centuries, and there are so many abandoned castles, churches and monasteries going way back in history.   Then there are the more recent ruins, houses abandoned because the family have died out and there were no descendants, houses damaged in bad storms and they were too costly to repair,  or simply because there was no more use for them.   Here are a few such buildings.
