Glendalough before Round Tower was restored

Glendalough before Round Tower was restored

Side cars, or perhaps more correctly, Jaunting Cars at Glendalough, Co. Wicklow. We knew this was taken between 1860 and 1883, and the "bare headed" Round Tower has helped us to date it more accurately, as dera... More

India in Ireland! The "Hindo Gate: Dromore, Co. Waterford"
