Abandoned farm and crop markings
Abandoned farm and crop markings
On the steep sides of Killary Harbour, adjacent to the 'famine road' built as part of a poor relief scheme during the potato blight of 1845-49, there are a number of abandoned farms. In the field above the derelict building you can see the parallel banks created by earthing up a potato crop over a period of years.
