Re: Re: Any Wall Sundials On Irish Buildings
And it just so happens that someone has created a website just about Sundials in Ireland, what are the chances of that? http://homepage.ntlworld.com/michael.j.harley/ireland.htm
The sundial 5 metres up on the south west corner of St. Mary’s, Church of Ireland, in Crossmolina has obviously been restored along the 12 noon line. The west half with the better engraving and portion of the motto may be the original. The motto was probably “MANEO NEMINI” I Wait for no one.
So Teak, are you thinking of incorporating a sundial into one of your projects? I like the simplicity of them & had even thought about doing a painted one on my house before, but like a lot of my notions it never materialised into reality.
Heres some Italian wall painted sundials. http://thedailycure.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/thing-3-the-time-of-day/
