Attributed to Joseph Turner (ca. 1772-1835), after an original drawing by Gabriel Beranger (1729-1817), who visited Clonmacnoise on August 12th/13th, 1779 (see NLI Ms 4162, pages 28-30). Turner may have been copying for Austin Cooper, who was also copying similar material, especially around the month of October 1799.
