. break now over...............!!! . so i pulled over at the foot of this mountain of madness as there was this statue/memorial to the famine...........in the form of a famine ship ! . feast your eyes ! . . . this is a bit maudlin for sure but i think the point is made ! . . . . after traipsing round this 'ship of death' you can then go for a bit to eat in the pub . . . . and a close up of the aforementioned hill of pain . . . . soon back on the road and the calmness of the sea and mild damp soft air helped me out of the thoughts of hunger and dying and all the sadness that pervaded the country back then..........i was thinking how there could have been so much beauty and still so much pain and hunger in this place. . but the waters were calming at least. . . .
