MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: AUTUMN IN IRELAND

AUTUMN IN IRELAND

The Ulster-American Folk Park, outside Omagh, Co.Tyrone, is a fascinating experience, portraying the lifestyles of Ulster men and women who lived in the area and emigrated to the United States in the early 1800s.  It is located on the grounds of the former Mellon Family farm, of Carnegie Mellon fame.  I loved the juxtaposition of the American farmstead rail fences with the Irish foliage.

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: CO. MEATH AUTUMN

IRISH AUTUMN

When you think of autumn, you may think of flaming orange and crimson trees.  And when you think of Ireland, you may think of endless fields of green.  Both are beautiful sights.  As is this view from my kitchen window near Moynalty, County Meath, Ireland.  Even with the slight mist and glowering grey sky, the vibrancy of the redthorn bush, the golden yellow of the remaining birch leaves, the sparkling white of the berries and, of course, the legendary emerald fields offers a most pleasing vista.

I have no idea what kind of birds those are but they arrive in flocks and now, 2 days later, the bush is decimated of its berries!
