A little piece of history

Killeshandra Holy Rosary Convent
Lost and gone forever

We took a trip to the Holy Rosary Convent in Killeshandra, Co. Cavan last November. It’s an old abandoned convent and we spent quite a few hours exploring and photographing the interior.

Couple of blog posts about it here and here with the rest of the pics over on Pix.ie.

Sadly it was demolished this week and our photos take on a new meaning now. In fact these are probably the last photographs taken there which highlights the importance of photographs, especially documentary type shots which hopefully will live on forever as a reminder of our past.

  1. Great to have those photos for the local historians. What a perspective. I take it’s from the wide angle lens. Well done you on having these shots before it was demolished.

  2. That looks like a pretty wide-angle shot, and it looks great in BnW. It’s great as Shane said that somebody’s documented the building before demolition – as you say yourself it’s an important record. Maybe some day somebody will be looking for them, and find them useful?

  3. Some great documentary images there Denis and as you say they are all the more important now. Given the history of some of those places these will most likely be the last remaining records of their demise.
