I saw a comment on 'Deadly Beds in Kinsale' that someone did not know why there was a smile on the face of the donkey on the Castledermot High Cross. Writer also said they did not get an answer at yhe Pewtermill in Timolin. Well I must not have been there that day. Eamon Kane, Castledermot Historian, claims they donkey is smiling because it is on the way home from Egypt and not as most think that the panel features 'The Flight into Egypt'. This is quite possible as many Irish manuscripts feature little alternative twists to the anticipated stories. I hope you see this as it is the first time I posted on Trip Advisor.
The Pewter Man.
