North West Mayo was voted the best place in Ireland to go wild.

Not so long ago we travelled the narrow roads to Rossport to visit family.

The road brought us to Denny’s Ferry Bar, our destination.

A few yards down the remaining road the hedges part and the pier sits neatly to one side.

From there the view is energising!


Primroses on the roadside,

Small stacks of turf dress the ditches.

Water laps against the pier.

Homesteads worked into the rolling slopes.

Much sweat and saliva given to growing stone walls.
