Killone Lake shimmers in the Autumn breeze in this view from 12th Century Killone Abbey near Ennis in County Clare, Ireland.

By  the early 1600s, the Abbey was abandoned and fell into ruin, though the associated cemetery has graves as recent as 2008.

The ruins now are protected as a one of  Ireland’s National Monuments. It’s situated about three miles from the town of Ennis.
