The Burren



"During counter-guerrilla operations in The Burren in 1651-52, Edmund Ludlow stated, '(Burren) is a country where there is not enough water to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury him...... and yet their cattle are very fat; for the grass growing in turfs of earth, of two or three foot square, that lie between the rocks, which are of limestone, is very sweet and nourishing'" (Wikipedia).

  5. Each crevice between the rocks has its own micro-environment. I'd love to visit there.
