The Irish Landscape is full of old Farms and home places, filled with many memories of generations past…..

This farm is located very close to the mountain of Slievenamon, country Tipperary.

    Strikes me a little sad to see the crumbling of a family home Nigel but as you say quite common I know in Ireland .

  2. And of many ‘crumbled’ houses ownership seems hard to discover for generations ago many Irish fled to North America driven by hunger and poverty (plague)..

    • Hello πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Yes I think that’s very true, even though the land became free it is now owned my a new generation of framers.

      Sometimes on Irish Farms the old house was just left , after a new one had been built they just moved to another field and a new home πŸ™‚

      • For your photography you must be very happy with an overload of competing ‘framers’ …. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        BTW did not know that the abandoned land became free but than it’s quite some yrs ago I was in Ireland…

    Great shots in B & W, Nigel.
    Sad to see old buildings crumbling and falling down like this.

    • Hello Vicky πŸ™‚

      Yes it is , but most of the time the Farmers left for new work or the family reached a natural end with a single Farmer being the only one of the family left and with out children the land became free !!!

      Thank you for your comment Vicky πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
