Behind and to either side of the farmhouse in this photo, one can see barns. These seem to have the straight rooflines, rather than the domed or curved metal roofs. The walls are like the farmhouse - concrete blocks with a plaster coating outside.
Hedgerows appear to be defining the barnyard, and in the foreground is a lovely rock wall. Some of the rock walls were entirely laid vertically, others like this one, had a decorative vertical top border, and still others were totally laid horizontally. These rock walls define some amazing pastures and fields with even more amazing stories of how the Irish made useable land from what appears to natively be simply rock. These farmers' ancestors had fortitude!
