Kilrickle Co. Galway

This ruin of a old big house is on the Kilrickle to Bullaun road, I do not know the history, I just liked the mood of it against the sun.

Is it the remnant of a chimney that's sticking up there?

And I believe you forgot to mention something that Leisha is sure to be asking about... ;P

thanks Anonymous, would you believe that I often use that road as a shortcut and it was the first time that I noticed it, maybe that I usually use that road early in the morning when I am in a hurry!

That is my cousin's back yard (really). It is Walliscourt in Kilrickle. A ruin of an old mansion.

Nice sunset picture. During the day you would see lots of sheep in the field surrounding it.
