I received some news today which rather put me on the back foot, so it might be a day or two before I feel like making a card. If you're in touch with the Big Guy upstairs, you might throw one in for my little dude. In the meantime I have a couple of shots taken in and around the Mourne mountains over this past weekend.
Top is Greencastle which turns out to be quite an interesting castle - tho only open in the summer months, so I couldn't actually get into it, but it's on my list.
The following is quoted from the Ireland's Eye website:
"The castle was built by Hugh de Lacy almost certainly during the 1230s to protect the southern approaches to the Earldom of Ulster. It was escheated to the Crown after 1243, wrecked by the Irish in 1260 and from 1280 to 1326 was a favoured residence of the most powerful man in Ireland, Richard de Burgh, the "Red Earl" of Ulster. His daughters were raised here, including Elizabeth, who married Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, in 1302 although this did not dissuade Edward Bruce from sacking it in 1316."
The next is some pretty wild primroses and below that one of the many ruins scattered throughout the hills, I'm a total sucker for romantic historical settings.
