Killoughternane Church, Co Carlow.

This small church is known as the "White Church" and was built around the 10th Century. The only light entering is from single window where the alter would have been. The roof would have been made of timber, thence the lack of roof. This style was similar to other churches built before the arrival of the Normans .
What it may have looked like
