A picture of the holy water font at our front door. Mam received this as a gift a very long time ago.

Holy water fonts are a common find in most Irish homes, Ireland being a very ‘faithful’ place after all. It’s the only country in the world where a visit from the Pope is of greater or equal significance as to Garth Brooks playing in Croagh Park or a visit from Obama.

Normally, these fonts are filled with holy water and a person would bless themselves as they enter or leave the residence, using the water held within. Unfortunately, ours is a bit dry at the moment!

Hope you all like the photo!
