Although this wasn’t a “special day”, ie solstice or equinox, I have to wonder if the beam of sunlight is significant for this time and place. A few minutes earlier or later, it appears that it would have been passing directly through the small window opening. It’s the ruins of the “Seven Churches” (Na Seacht d’Teampaill) on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of County Clare, Ireland. This was a significant monastic settlement established by St Brecan and built between the 9th and 15th centuries. Probably only 2 churches were actually built as well as numerous other domestic buildings, and, of course, a cemetery.
