Dursey Patchwork

Dursey Patchwork
Dursey Patchwork

At the end of the Beara peninsula lies a cable car.  The cable car stretches from the mainland to the Island of Dursey across a narrow strait. While the cable car will carry many a tourist in the summer months it acts as a lifeline for the few islanders left. However, it’s not just people that use the cabin, with sheep and cattle being transported to and from the Island. The last time I took the cable car I had to share the confined space with a couple of sheep dogs and several bags of cement mix.

The photograph shows a view from Dursey looking back down the Island to the mainland, highlighting a small number of patchwork fields where farmers eked out a living.

  1. Sheep on a cable car. I can barely cope with them as it is without sheep running around (nothing against the sheep themselves, it’s the running around).

    Cement would be alright.


Love to hear what you think
