Medieval Monuments

Clonfert Cathedral

Its famous Romanesque Doorway (below), showing:

- Decorated gable above the doorway
- Eight receding orders, each differently decorated (the innermost order, made of limestone, is a later addition)
- Splayed columns

Only the gable of the church is Romanesque, the main building is of a later date but still contains interesting details.
