Hore Abbey from the R932
This view is no longer available to the traveller along this road. This is because the angular line of conifers (probably Cupressocyparis leylandii) which traverse the photo have, in the intervening 20 years, done exactly what leyland cypresses always do - grown tall and occlusive. Ironically, 'Hore' is thought to derive from 'iubhair' the yew tree; another conifer, but slower growing. In the background and off to the right is the nearby Rock of Cashel.
