Guagán Barra

The oft-photographed little church at Guagán Barra a few miles on from Béal Atha an Ghaorthaidh.  This is the starting point of the River Lee which runs all the way to Cork City.

The church here is tiny with just enough room for one person to go up the aisle.  I played the uilleann pipes at a wedding here when I was barely a teenager for my neighbour who was teaching me the violin at the time.  Brave move (for her!) but I thoroughly enjoyed it and I still play some of the tunes I learned for that wedding to this day.  I no longer play the violin though!
