WATCH: A stroll around Nendrum Monasic Site on a fine spring day

Some weeks back I wrote a feature for the retro supplement on Mahee Island and the Nendrum Monastic site.

At that time, because of Covid-19 restrictions, I wasn’t able to make the forty minute from my home in east Belfast to Nendrum.

Thankfully I was able to called on Professor Eileen Murphy at Queen’s University who loaned me a couple of photographs from the site.

But now restrictions are easing and I am able to get out and about more, especially in my home county of Down anyway, and I have had a chance to drive down to Nendrum to take some photographs and video of the site.

And the day couldn’t have been promising, as you will see from the video and pictures I can now share of the site.
