'Former town at Clonmines' is my depiction of the closed medieval Borough of Clonmines situated near Wellingtonbridge in the southeast of Ireland. 

“Walking over the surface of God’s earth shall be construed to mean trespassing on some gentleman’s grounds.” 
wrote Henry David Thoreau in an 1862 essay entitled, 'Walking' and it could almost have been the subject of this painting that he had in mind when he penned these faithful words.
