Scope and content

A view of a man posing in the window of the ruined medieval church at Kilmalkedar near Dingle in County Kerry in about 1940. The caption on the reverse of the print provides detail on the traditional cures associated with this church : ‘Even the stoutest can pass through this "needle’s eye" at the beautiful ancient Church of Kilmalkedar by following the directions of the guide. If the window is passed through three times on Easter Sunday and the church circumambulated three times in the direction of the sun’s motion it is said to be a certain cure of all rheumatic ills. It is said no one has yet failed to pass through the window’.
