I Agree. Excellent pics and text. Thought that other one on ribbon houses was excellent too. never read stuff like this in the CT or WP or MN.
While I feel sorry for the folks that got cut off it looks like it's all down to their greedy neighbours who garnered riches from too many sheep! Imagine your family grave being washed out to sea and your parent's or children's or grandparent's bones being lost to sea as a result of some greedy neighbour shoving way too many sheep out on the hillside above your family grave. I can only imagine the distress that will be caused by the loss of remains. They surely will have to rebury the remains of their loved ones if they are ever found. The sheep farmers have a lot to answer for. I remember them years back on TV laughing and saying how the climate was different in Mayo and then the camera showed a fence dividing two fields - one perfect and the other chomped all they way down to bare soil.
