St. Kevin of Glendalough


The Irish Monk St. Kevin founded a monastery at Glendalough, pictured in the first photo. The famous tower, whose exact function is not certain, is pictured in the background of the church and cemetery. His statue depicts a famous episode from his life when a bird landed on his arms outstretched in prayer and laid an egg. Kevin reportedly kept praying in that position until the egg hatched.
