This is a fantastic photograph of a dead young woman named Jeanette Glackmeyer. There is writing on the card the photo is mounted on stating that she had been dead nine days when this photograph was taken. Regardless of this antique writing, I really have trouble believing it.

This area, whose name means valley of two lakes, is home to one of the oldest monasteries in Ireland, as well as two beautiful lakes and a few other sites of historical interest (most of which are connected with the monastery). It is a great place to go see if you're in Dublin as it is quite close by.
