Féile na gCloch, Inis Oírr

Meanwhile back at the Island Co-op on Inis Oirr there was another workshop going on led by Scottish walling instructors Nick Aitken and George Gunn. On Friday the students repaired a section of wall on the west side of the parking lot knocked down by a local farmer backing up his tractor accidentally  (tractors seem to be the main source of transportation on the island)

Here is the wall completely repaired by the Friday evening of the same day that the students dismantled it.

  1. I love the look of an Irish wall. The stones give such an endearing quality of looking like they have been standing for very long time.
