I needed to look up a photo to find out where it was taken but when I typed 8375, the number of the image, into Lightroom’s search field I noticed how many similar portrait shots showed up. Images from Kerry to Clare to Kilkenny to London, and taken from 2004 to 2013.

The Ratty River

The Ratty River

View of the Ratty River as seen from the top of Bunratty Castle, Co Clare.

Despite the cloudy sky temperatures were in the low twenties so it was quite warm, especially after climbing up the many steps to the top of the castle!

Oddly enough I couldn’t find this view in a search for the river name on Google or Flickr. It’s probably there if you look for Bunratty Castle but I’ll leave that to other inquisitive minds.

Cock a doodle do!

Cock a doodle do!

A cock in Bunratty Folk Village struts around protecting his patch of ground from a nosy photographer.

Don’t think I’ve ever heard the nursery rhyme of the same phrase.

Cock a doodle do!
My dame has lost her shoe,
My master’s lost his fiddlestick,
And knows not what to do.

Thatched Roof in Bunratty

A thatched roof on one of the cottages in Bunratty Folk Park, County Clare.

There’s one ugly open mine right next door but it’s well hidden. I had no idea it was there until I checked Google Maps a minute ago!
