From Cahersiveen, County Kerry.

Ballycarbery Castle dates from around the 15th century; though now in ruins, it has attracted its share of visitors over the years, including some who left their names in its rocks.

Though in general I don’t condone defacing buildings, I kind of love old graffiti like this.  It gives you another sense of the history of the place.

Though the mark of “J. Lyons” in 1874 may seem recent for the place, it’s practically ancient history to us Americans. 😀  And even 1999 may seem like ancient history for “J+M” now!
