I'm off to Ireland tomorrow and very much looking forward to seeing Patrick McAfee again. Here's a photo I took of him last year at this time at the Famine Museum looking at a book about dry stone walls. It looks like he's finding it an amusing read. Must be a dry humour.
Here's a section of dry stone wall in County Mayo near the site where we will be working again.
Here's looking across the street from the place where we stay. Crazy interesting stonework everywhere. I love Ireland!
These beautifully built dry stone walls (over 150 years old) were commissioned by the railroad to be built along stretches of what has now become a new tourist hiking and biking trail called the The Great Western Greenway
