Forgotten fences

Thanks to St Patrick's Day I've spent a day remembering my trip to Ireland.  Oh, how I loved Ireland!  While looking through my photos I picked out a few fence shots to share.  I haven't linked to Good Fences for over a year, it's time I got back into the swing.

All of these were taken on the Dingle Peninsula, the first few at the farm of the shepherd, Gabriel.


 Gabriel's father home, behind the stone fence, not lived in since the 1960s.

  1. To me, the beauty of this landscape is just overpowering. We have the exact same stone fences here in Kentucky. Courtesy of early Irish residents.

  4. Isn't that a fabulous part of the Emeraald Isle too Pauline!
    I love the old stone walls and views of the sea!
    We were there in June last year and loved it all and the Irish people! Being half Irish that wasn't hard for me!

  7. Loved your Irish fences. Ireland is the only country I've ever dreamed of visiting. Perhaps someday...until then I will enjoy photos like yours. They were awesome.

  8. It is a wonderful country with lots of fun and kindness.
    I can never reconcile this with it having such a dark history.

  14. I was all set to go to Ireland in 1970 - a country my father travelled and loved so much - on our honeymoon but for reasons I've forgotten we had to cancel and went to the English Lake District instead. I've never been. After all your stories it is somewhere I will have to go.
