  3. Hi Jane, lovely pieces (and love the stuff on Etsy too!). Just wondering if the ‘Kells’ mentioned is Kells, Co. Meath – or the Kells just outside of Kilkenny city?

    • Hi Sue, It’s the Kells just outside of Kilkenny city. We found the round tower a little aside from there. We were driving down the road I think back to Kilkenney and I spied the round tower over the trees. there was no place to park so my husband just pulled over and let me out. there’s a small cemetery there and the round tower.
      thanks for the compliment. Jane
