Drystone walling on Inishmore
Drystone walling on Inishmore
Most of the walls on the Atlantic (South-western) side of Inishmore are built of slabs taken from the limestone pavement. They are then laid against each other in a seemingly haphazard way that is actually very strong, the holes are left intentionally to allow the onshore gales to blow through rather than against the wall.
