Description:A photograph of the ruin of Ross Errilly Friary in Galway county. It is said to be the most extensive and best preserved of all the Franciscan friaries in Ireland. It was founded in 1351, and its chief patrons were the de Burghs, a prominent local Norman family. The ruin has a large bell tower and there is a crow flying over the tower. There is a boy sitting on a rock in front of the building. He is barefoot. On the left, there is a stone wall adjoining the ruin, and there is a large tree behind this wall. There are sheep grazing in front of the ruin, and there are cattle grazing in the distance. A house and trees can be seen beyond the cattle.
