A drainage Issue solved

We suspected that one of the gaps in the original stone wall which we had chosen to repair at last weekend's workshop had fallen down because the ground water had undermined the foundation. 

We rebuilt that part of the wall with a drain to alleviate the problem. 

Here you can see the wall (and drain with stone lintel) from both sides. 

First - above, on the morning of the second day after there had been many hours of rain, 

Then - below, on the same day at the completion of the dry stone workshop workshop in Mayo County, Ireland
