St. Kevin's Church, Glendalough

Another postcard from Brian from Ireland.  This one shows St. Kevin's Church in Glendalough which means the valley of two lakes.  St. Kevin's was established as a monastery in the 6th century which grew into one of Europe's foremost centers of learning.  It is notable for for its high- pitched stone roof.  The round tower, was common to most Irish early Christian sites.
