Near Oughterard

In the last three days, without any real thought, I have looked at an English relative and then somewhere in Wales and somewhere in Scotland. So with forethought, this time, let’s look at somewhere in Ireland and the place I have chosen is near a place sometimes called the gateway to Connemara. That’s Oughterard but we were a few miles further west at Derroura. According to the signs this is a mountain biking place but what impressed us were the wild flowers. The west of Ireland is rich in flora!

That was a magical little stop back in August 2011.
