Weekly photo challenge: Wall
There are times of the year when our cottage walls take on a whole new life of their own. The image above was taken in June last year but in honour of St Patrick, and the day that’s in it, here is our back wall ‘wearing the green’ to wish you all a very happy St Patrick’s Day.

If only Sherkin Island’s walls could talk. Imagine what those walls would say of the countless generations who worked the hard land. It must have been back-breaking work but so essential when those boundaries shaped tiny pockets of precious land. Every wall seems to have a personality and character of its own, created by Sherkin people, past and present. It is great to know that the skill of dry wall building lives on today. Here are just some of the many lovely walls of Sherkin Island.
