Black Leather Party at T.R.A.C.S. part 2

When I made the little graveyard at or island, Tim said it looked a little as Clonmacnoise.
Okay a very little.

The monastery of Clonmacnoise (Cluain Mhic Nóis in Irish, meaning "Meadow of the Sons of Nós") is situated in County Offaly, Ireland on the River Shannon south of Athlone.
Clonmacnoise was founded in 545 by Ciaran of Clonmacnoise. Until the 9th century it had close associations with the kings of Connacht. The strategic location of the monastery helped it become a major centre of religion, learning, craftsmanship and trade by the 9th century and together with Clonard it was the most famous in Ireland, visited by scholars from all over Europe. From the ninth until the eleventh century it was alliance with the kings of Mide. Many of the high kings of Tara and Connacht were buried here.

Yesterday we had the party at our "Clonmacnoise".
Jenna, or DJ for this evening, did a great job, as always, to find songs that would fit the theme Black Leather.
We not had such a big crowd as last week but we had great fun. Jenna went on and on till it was almost 4 pm. So for 4 hours! Amazing how that girl can let you forget time.
