Take me to church…

I don’t know what it is about exploring these magnificent churches, but I just cant get enough.  The other day I was sure a church was trying to lure me in, it had candles everywhere all leading into the church, with a guy playing the guitar and to top it off, it had banners about pope Francis everywhere, but alas I was on the opposite side of the road on a busy traffic day.   I talked about all the way home, but the churches don’t even have to be as pushy as that one, with all the statues, architecture and stained glass, I just want to storm into every single one I see.  Most of these churches have beautiful parks to take long walks in and really just admire the beauty of Ireland, and don’t even get me started on the graveyards! I’m all for a walk back into time and reading tombstones of people who once were, who are a part of someone’s heritage and family history.

^^ We hardly go inside these buildings.  I just never want to pay.  Yeah, we cheap it out too the max.

I would say the churches of Ireland are a must see, but everywhere you look is a church way grander than the next.  Just go for a walk and you will see a magnificent church on every corner!
