From the Poem Under Ben Bulben WB Yeats described his simple gave and inscription in the last few lines.
A sculpture dedicated to one of the often quoted Yeats poems "He wishes for the Clothes of Heaven"
HAD I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Two pictures of Ben Bulben posted before

This is the view towards the spot where Lord Henry Mountbatten, a relation to the throne of England was blown up by the IRA in 1978 on his boat on a trip to Donegal. Those that heard the Queens speech in Dublin were gladly surprised to hear her mention how the trouble had "touched us all" might not have realised the connection. Other pictures taken in 2008 here.

The view from the back of my house last night, 2km away from a Bog fire.
These trees burning are full grown and about 20-30metres in height
Look to the right of the bush on the left side and you can see a fireman going to check farmbuildings, still some distance from the fire. In the second shot he's more blurred but between the 2nd and 3rd bushes.
