Old country Graveyard, Carrick, Co Kildare.

This is the thought to date back to the 13th Century, the Castle beside it is from the Birmenghams of Carbury.

Camouflaged cross is well camouflaged!!

Kimberly thanks, Leisha is always saying I do not take pictures of flowers so I try to get the odd one in.
Robin thanks, it is a pity that some of the older castles are in bits all over the country, but I like finding this ones as I get around, the make interesting silloutes against the backgrounds.
