I reckon that every town, village and hamlet … has its own special landmark that tells you well in advance that ‘you’ve arrived.’ I’m not sure that everyone will have the same landmark for a particular place but I know that, for me, a sighting of the steeple of the Holy Cross Church in Tramore announces that I’m nearing home.
The church stands at the top of the town and can be seen from all directions from miles around.
I’d love to know what your special landmark is, wherever you may happen to live?
Oh, and speaking of landmarks, I just love the website of the Irish Landmark Trust which highlights all sorts of iconic buildings in Ireland and has a listing of amazing places in which one can stay. http://www.irishlandmark.com/
