Postcards from Ireland #8

by Kristin on September 28, 2012

Ruins of the old watch house built on the site of a smuggler’s cottage in County Sligo, used to keep watch for sailing ships. Jack B. Yeats featured it in his paintings.

I love these posts – such a fun way to get a glimpse of the countryside for this city girl. Dying to know, though, what did they smuggle?

Thanks, Emily! I have no idea what they smuggled. So romantic in a Victorian kind of way, isn’t it?

Thanks, Hester! I love Sligo – I would happily live out there if we weren’t tied to Dublin. Such a beautiful part of the country.
