Why a cap????
We went for a walk around Abbey Hill in north Clare at the weekend and thereafter went for a drive around the New Quay area. On the way to the Martello Tower, I spotted this unusual feature.
I remember some years ago, CC commented that he regularly purchased local history books when he visited an area. Back then, it did not hit home with me. The ‘current me’, the me doing this blog now has a decent quantity of such local books which so help with the signs and plaques that one might see on one’s travels – as proven by my later purchase of ‘A Burren Village’.
As well as wondering about and admiring the work, there were some initial thoughts rushing about my head including:
I read ‘Christ Yesterday Today Forever’ as ‘Christ was for Yesterday’ Always Live for Today’. It was only when looking back at the photograph that I believe that my original thought was incorrect.
If we had only spotted the monument and book last year, then I would not have needed to ask about W.D. – although the retreat directional arrows would still be new to me.
Well done Mr. Tommy Fahy for providing a very interesting distraction to the passers-by.
