Out to Omey Island

I just got back to a weekend trip to Connemara with Rosemary and Medb to stay with Rosemary’s family, which was lovely and relaxing and everything I could ask for sandwiched between two very busy weeks (the ROPES editorial staff had a six-hour meeting on Thursday, to name just one of the many things going on last week, and my MA thesis proposal is due at the end of next week, so I’m not the least-stressed-out person around). We spent most of Saturday walking across beach after beach to Omey Island where Rosemary, who studied archaeology, told us all about Teampaill Feichin, the shell middens, and the other items of historical interest. Despite the wind and rain, it was a beautiful trek. Here are some photos—though my iPhone hardly does the landscape justice:
