Life and Death
Up on the limestone pavement above Ballyvaughan stands this amazing construction..Poulnabrone Portal tomb.
(There is a lovely textile piece based on this on Paddy's daughter's blog here)
Its incredible to think that thousands of years ago the dead were laid here.
The fissures in the limestone make beautiful patterns and we were told that in the Spring there are hundreds of species of flowers growing in them.
Just over the edge of the site we found this deep pond teeming with mating frogs.
Look at their little heads popping up out of the water.
The noise was amazing.You can hear it as vibrating hum in this video.( I think the other clicking sound is something to do with me trying unsuccessfully to zoom in )
How fortunate we were to be there on that particular day.
