Back in the 6th century, a monk named Kevin built a small monastery in this scenic little valley in the Wicklow Mountains (for this and other reasons, he became a Saint). As with all of these monastic communities, much of it has been rebuilt or modified over the centuries. And as with all of them, or at least the ones we've seen, the older buildings sort of become more permanent monuments in haphazard graveyards. People are buried just about everywhere.
