Boula Church, Co. Galway

There I was – lost! – in Co. Galway :(  I’d set off to go from Portlaoise over to Loughrea and I did not have an actual map to show me the road but I did have the OS map I needed for that area of Galway.  I was after gravestones wasn’t I and my family are from over that way….

So, I asked trusty old Google maps on my phone to direct me and even though I was not expecting it the maps told me I had to go to Birr to get to Loughrea and that was all right except for when I got to Birr, Mr. Phone died and left me on my own and that was how I got lost!  I drove into Eyrecourt thinking ok, I can take photos here, *but* no, no good thinking that, I’ve already been in Eyrecourt and have already taken photos!  No signposts telling me where Loughrea is in relation to Eyrecourt so I set out for Portumna knowing that Loughrea was right of that…….

En route to Portumna, I spotted a church.  I would have sworn it was a Protestant church except for the grotto in the garden.  No gravestones.
