A walk in Clogher woods

One day I have decided to take a walk in the woods in Clogher near Monasteraden village to look at the stone fort and St Attracta’s holy well.

On the way up to the stone fort I took some photographs of the textures and moss on the barks of the trees.

The stone fort is 2500 years old. The diameter is 26m and the walls are 4.3m thick. The two underground passages are called sou-terrains which were used for refuge and storage in the early iron age.

The large entrance is 1.8m wide.

This collage goes all around the stone fort. I decided to go up the steps to photograph each side around the edges.

It was very dark in the passageways so I put on my flash mode on my camera to see what is inside.

St Attracta’s holy well was where people used to get their drinking water. The lake was used to go fishing for the brown trout.
