Irish Barns!

I thought I'd share some of the barns we saw while in Ireland this spring.  Some of them are VERY old! 

This was the small chicken barn at Dan O'Mara's in Connemara.




This was what was left of another small barn nearby.





There were a lot of photos we tookof structures that were no longer recognizable as anything other than a pile of stones - the stones were everywhere!  But, the country is fascinating, and when we return, we plan to look for more barns!

Linking to Barn Charm.

Oh my! It's official, I'm in love! That chicken barn has charm wrapped around its little finger. I could live in that, never mind my chickens! : )
