7th Century Church
[previous] :: [next]
St ronan is said to have founded a church in the 7th century at this spot a mile and a half south of Lisnaskea, where many Maguire Chieftains were buried.Of greater interest than the ruined church with battered walls are the the 18th century grave-stones,some kept locked in a stone vault.
Headstones like these can be found around Fermanagh and in parts of Monaghan. MORTAILTY SYMBOLS The skull and cross bones is a well known symbol for death. The coffin and bell represent a funeral,The hour glass represents the time running out. These symbols tell us a lot about how people felt about life and death at that time. If you what to know more, google for pubble graves

I don,t think the plague did reach ireland,What did occur was a potato famine(1845-1850)FAMINE FEVER-cholera,dysentery,scurvy,typhus.Same thing i guess.Potatoes were irelands main crop and food source.Landlords at this time respond,s to there tenants who could,t pay their rent was to evict tham from their homes, which were often torn down.More than a million died,some were sent to crowded,disease-ridden work houses.More than a million emigrated to North america,Canada,Australia and Britain on overcrowded coffin ships.I was down at battery park to day and got soom pics of a famine house,I think I all so have pic of work house in my home town.I will post tham.

i'm not so sure, it was something my mother used to tell me, far more likely is that they were times before mass literacy, so pictograms would be more meaningful to people. not sure exactly how i might check, you can't put a pictogram into google

oh yes best to steer clear of that. dunno what skea is like now, but my ex's family lived in carrowshee an it was a bit of a hive of ira activity. or so i always like to imagine.
barry: 29th Sep 2005 - 15:15 GMT
I don,t no if there was much activity a round lisnaskea,I guess a little i would say more so around the smaller towns and villages,country side,eg- Rosslea,donagh,Derrylin,Killnaly,Clones an so on.I never had anytime for Politics even to this day,and I don,t what to no.
jamie: 29th Sep 2005 - 15:42 GMT

Yeah, but if you get the chance, take some photos dude. Winter in Ireland is very camera unfreindly i know but adobe photoshop can do wonders with underexposures. And dude, i dunno if you're going to skea? but if you are, i would LOVE YOU FOREVER if you would take some photos of Cross Street where i used to live.
barry: 8th Oct 2005 - 00:55 GMT
