I visited Boulge Church on Sunday, this is where Edward Fitzgerald, who translated The Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam into English, is buried, not in the family mausoleum but in an adjacent grave.

Visitors from around the world visit this remote Church, more pictures on the Boulge page in the next few days/weeks
