Forgotten Ireland

There is a difference between a landscape that has always been nature, and a landscape that was once lived in and been worked on by people. People that in a certain moment in time have left, and left their home and land behind them. “Wasteland”.

Ireland, and specially its west coast, are full of such wastelands.

Occupied and lived upon and now steadily, after years and years, lovingly embraced by Mother Earth. Covered in a green cloak of trees, plants and shrubs. Centuries after centuries the Irish, preferably, did not live in towns or villages, but as families in small settlements on “good spots” in harmony with nature. Always near a well or floating water. The ancient remains of these “clachans” are still visible everywhere through the Irish landscape.The abundance of space makes clearing out unnecessary.

Such a place, where the ancient powers of Mother Earth slowly but surely have taken over the abandoned en sensible remains of human habitation, is Annagh More.
