Collection:Aran
Year:1952
Description:A photograph of a clochán or bee-hive cell in Onaght on Inis Mór. Inis Mór is the largest of the three Aran Islands and the Aran Islands are off the west coast of Ireland. These cells are small stone cells and were used by monks during the 'Dark Ages'. The area is rocky and the fields are bounded by stone walls. There is a man leaning against a stone wall on the left. He is wearing a cap and is holding what appears to be a book in his right hand. The photograph was taken in 1952.
