Artist's Description

One of the ancient crosses in the old graveyard at Fahan village in Donegal.
Fahan (Irish: Fathain, meaning “little green/field”) (pronounced fawn) is a district of Inishowen, in County Donegal, Ireland, located 5 km (3 miles) south of Buncrana. In Irish, Fahan is named after its patron saint, Saint Mura, first abbot of Fahan, an early Christian monastery.
The walled graveyard, located to the west of The Rectory, contains the grave of pioneering nurse Agnes Jones, the ruins of a 6th-century monastery featuring a 7th-century cross-slab of St. Mura, the ruins of 16th-century monastery and 17th-century church together with many interesting grave slabs bearing coats of arms.The monastery and village was sacked by Vikings in the 10th and 13th centuries. Medieval mill wheels are built into both the graveyard wall and the wall on the opposite side of the road.
Cecil Frances Alexander lived in the Old Rectory in the late 19th century. Her contemporary, Agnes Jones, trained with Florence Nightingale and nursed in the Crimean War. Agnes Jones was born in Cambridge in England. Edward Maginn, a 19th-century bishop, served as a parish priest in Fahan. The church to the north of The Rectory contains an early 20th-century stained-glass window by Evie Hone which depicts St. Elizabeth of Hungary.
My father-in-law Alan Foster is buried in the new graveyard.
I have processed the image ever so slightly to add an old look. I hope I succeeded.
