On this Good Friday, when church services have been curtailed/prohibited due to the pandemic, it seems appropriate that we go to church? This lovely photograph of the “Old Cathedral” at Leighlin in County Carlow shows a church that looks like it was built in stages. The gentleman loitering on the tombstone looks like a poet in contemplative mood, and so inspired the title above.
