clifden castle, connemara

seen from Sky Road, Clifden.   It looks like it belongs in a fairy tale story.

Clifden Castle is a ruined manor house west of the town of Clifden in the Connemara region of County Galway, Ireland. It was built c. 1818 for John D'Arcy, the local landowner, in the Gothic Revival style.  Uninhabited after 1894 it fell into disrepair. In 1935, ownership passed to a group of tenants, who were to own it jointly, and it quickly became a ruin.

blowing in the wind

with some clouds and occasional rain mixed in.

I am currently on the road in Clifden, west of Galway and unfortunately the wifi stinks.  My blog is set up till Friday so when  I return, I will catch up with you all.  It took me an hour to add this note, it's so aggravating :(  I guess we are spoiled when it comes to technology--we want it and we want it instantly.  Have a great rest of the week!
