More stunning pictures of St Cronan’s, taken by local undertaker Michael Durkan of  on a fine November day.  The photographs include images of our recently restored Blessed Well and the famous round tower here in Balla, remnants of a c.6th Century monastic site.

Thanks to Balla Community Council for the co-ordination of the restoration project, another symbol of a parish community contribution to restoring the past and enhancing the future.
