Fence Climbing

"There's only one thing I never did and wish I had done: climbed over a fence."
...Queen Mary

Here are some fences that one should definitely NOT climb!  Can you say "OUCH!"?
Holy Trinity Church, Westport, Ireland


Ballynahinch Castle, now a hotel

St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin

All those points make me very nervous!
These are just a few fences from our trip to Ireland last year...linking to Friday's Fences.

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing those, since I'm not sure I'll ever be brave enough to cross the Atlantic to see Ireland!

Beth said...

i'm sure there is someone out there that would be silly enough to jump those fences. ha. ha!! (:

Lea said...

Do you notice that some fences seem to say, "Keep out!" and others say "Come on in!"
Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog!
Have a great week-end!

Those fences do make a "point" hehe

Very true, that would not be the fence to climb over...almost as bad as barbed wire! But what a beautiful church.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Nah.....no problem. Just use a bit of 'push' with your arm muscles and you can clear those spikes in no time flat. LOL...or just forget it, and walk through the gate, huh?

TexWisGirl said...

yeah, that one could be tricky to negotiate! :)

Lesley said...

These fences at least have a decorative quality to them that an electric, or barbed wire fence does not.

Kim, USA said...

Hahaha I know what you mean, that kind of fence you don't want to mess up ^_^

I love all that stone work!

Nancy said...

Ouch is right. The fences are really special and your perspectives are great. Have a great weekend.

Faye said...

Another Irish wannabe? I'm showing photos from Ireland too. But not these stern church fences. You'd think they didn't want us to come in, wouldn't you? :-)

Carletta said...

Hi Linda,
I was thinking the exact same thing as Faye. Shouldn't they want us to come in! :)
Great old stonework too!
I'm guessing you've been to Ireland. Lucky you. I've always wanted to go. (sigh)
Great fence shots!

Such beautiful churches and the iron fencing is wonderful. Our Episcopal church here has that type of fencing around it. Very traditional and so pretty. genie

OUCH is right! Some lovely fences....my favorite Irish fences though were the ones made from rocks - although these fences certainly have withstood the passage of time as well!

Owwwie is right but the fences are beautifully made and your snaps of the churches are very pretty. St. Patrick's is awesome. Lucky you visiting Ireland!

Yup, those pointy bits would certainly bring a tear to the eye Linda.

Well, hello fellow Chesapeake-dweller. I have lived in Chesapeake more than once, though the last place we lived in Va before we left was Suffolk. We moved to AZ to be close to our daughter and her family. How nice that you commented on my Fridays Fence post...loved yours as well! I too have traveled once in Ireland, and these were great photographs to see this St. Patrick's Day weekend! Hope you had a good one!
