A ‘thin’ place

I’ve read of ‘thin places’, a term originally used by Christians in the Celtic-speaking world of the early Middle Ages to describe places where it seemed the veil between heaven and earth was ‘thin’.

This all came to mind recently as we were walking along Harbour View Beach (off the R600 between Timoleague and Kinsale).
