While walking around Kinsale, we happened upon St. Multose Church. We knew nothing of its history prior to the visit. We could not get into the church but the cemetery and grounds are very much worth exploring. We are also not aware of the history of the swords and soldiers.

This 12th Century church has seen many changes since St Multose arrived in Kinsale in the 6th Century to bring Christianity to the locals. The Norman architecture is still quite prominent and the significants of the place is expressed within the church which was the site where King Charles II was proclaimed King of England following the execution of Charles...

The St. Multose Church has been established for many years. Take a walk around the ground and see headstones over 200 years old! There are even graves for passengers of the Lucitania that was sunk off the coast of Kinsale.

We couldn't get in, but the cemetery was very interesting. Old old old The most fascinating thing about this church was the stone door...and the marks in the stone on either side of the front door...deep grooves where the Norsemen (?) sharpened their swords before entering the church. Very much worth a stop...

I was attracted by the cemetery, it is something out of the normal. In some cases you can not read anything on the stones but the wole place is like coming out from a film

Be sure to look for the marks on the door where soldiers sharpened their swords, upper right side. Picturesque cemetery.

One of the oldest churches in the world still in use. We couldn't get inside, but found the cemetary interesting to see the gravestones from so old to recent.

Oldest Protestant church in Ireland apparently, not ornate, just very calm and quiet to spend a few minutes reflecting. Worth a visit.

Just walking around Kinsale to get a feel for the place, we happened onto the grounds of St. Multose. The burial grounds were full of old tombstones, some bearing inscriptions of historic significance (such as the memorial to two victims of the "Lusitania outrage"), but many totally unreadable due to age and weathering (notice the lichen growth on some of...
