In parts of Ireland people believe that the spirits of the dead still live within the ruins of their homes.
Who am I to disagree with them. This shot taken through a gap in the trees with a telephoto lens and shows a small stone homestead with out houses built onto the main house. It possibly had a thatched roof when built and since this is hill country it would have been hard to live of the land here. Today it’s mostly sheep on the hills with some cattle on land that has been cleared and reseeded for better grazing.
Taken from the Newry A1 Bypass, I spotted this old house a few months ago but only got round to photographing it. I hope to come back to this in a few years time to see how much nature has reclaimed it.
