ST COLUMBA’S CHURCH ON IONA ROAD IN DUBLIN
The plaque may cause one to believe that the saint lived for a thousand years.
St. Columba, also called Colum, or Columcille, (born c. 521, Tyrconnell [now County Donegal, Ireland]—died June 8/9, 597, Iona [Inner Hebrides, Scotland]; feast day June 9), abbot and missionary traditionally credited with the main role in the conversion of Scotland to Christianity.
Columba studied under Saints Finnian of Moville and Finnian of Clonard and was ordained priest about 551. He founded churches and the famous monasteries Daire Calgaich, in Derry, and Dair-magh, in Durrow.
The Sony A7RIV is by far the best camera that I own and on paper the Sony 85mm GM is my best lens but for various reasons I have not used the camera since my visit to Cork in 2022.
