Photographer's Note

A typical road in the Irish countryside. This one was just outside the Rathbaun Farm. This lovely heritage farm is situated in a rural area of Southwest County Galway (Ardrahan). The Connolly family has been farming 80 acres of land for over 200 years. Fintan Connolly continues this tradition today. The main livestock raised include are sheep, with some cows and horses. The Rathbaun Farm features a thatched cottage home, turf fire, stone walls and an array of animals. It gives a good idea of the daily workings of a small-scale family sheep farm. The farm is nestled in the west of Ireland with the Slieve Aughty Mountains to the South and the Atlantic Ocean to the West. It's open to the public from March to October for visitors, but gets quite busy during summer months so it's recommended to call ahead or email to make a reservation. The farm receives guests from 9 AM until 5 PM, but tour times vary. There's a 5.00 entrance fee, and morning coffee or afternoon tea along with a visit runs 9.00. Lunch along with a visit is 17.00. OK, it's a bit "commercial" but you can get some great pics!
