If you’re wondering why this post has such a familiar title, it’s because this post highlights yet more of my travels in the Emerald Isle. And yes, these pictures are very green!
On the first of our day trips we went to West Cork and hiked amongst the ruins of three different types of Irish dwellings and an ancient stone circle (which also included a dwelling of sorts).
Behold! A brief panorama of historic Ireland!
You can see the ridges of the rings of Garrannes Ringfort here
A glimpse through the trees surround the ringfort
View from the ringfort - you can see the rise of the mountains in the distance!
Ballincarriga Tower House windows and side wall
Our friend the raven continually interrupted our professor when he tried to lecture!
Coppinger's Court - Although not much remains, you can see how it would command the landscape back in its heyday.
Peeping through the windows of the ruin
Erin, Kelsey & I enjoying the sun!
I love these flowers; they're so beautiful!
Pathway leading up to Drombeg Stone Circle
A sunny circle (getting a picture without people in the circle is almost impossible)
Fulachta fiadh - contains a hearth, pit to heat water, and a mini-well
Glorious view of the fields and ocean!
