The Mayo Walling Clinic


At the beginning of the workshop instructors in Ireland are required to read aloud a printed document explaining everything that wallers must know about 'health and safety'. The students must then all sign a document saying they have read the material and understand all the risks involved in taking a dry stone wall workshop. 


After the students have taken all the precautions to safeguard against injury themselves, they are then instructed how to diagnose and properly care for the actual patient - the ailing dry stone wall.


This weekend is a veritable 'hospital' for walls and wallers here at the 'Mayo Clinic'.
