The one-lane roads lined with dry-stone walls remind us of Ireland’s past while sweet flowers opening by the wayside encourage hope for the future. Separating farming fields with dry-stone walls has made the landscape a patchwork of many shades of green. These stone walls can be taken down to let sheep move from one plot of land to another, no maintenance is needed over the years which makes this a perfect way to farm throughout the country.
