Millennia ago humans lived in the Burren on the karst. They buried their dead at the Poulnabrone dolmen, a megalithic tomb, where remains of men, women and children were found.
The setting is stark on the limestone landscape.
Sitting in the windy parking lot, Tom, a local craftsman, set up shop. He was genuinely curious about us and chatted while he stamped names written in the Ogham alphabet onto jewellery.
Next stop Dysert O’Dea Castle, built in the 15th century.
The castle had lots of artefacts from many periods in history.
The road took us to Ennis for a short visit to the yarn shop before it closed and then back home again.
