Ruins and Rain

Yesterday I mentioned the ruins of Dunmoe Castle, on the north bank of the River Boyne, a few miles north of Navan in County Meath. The spring meadows looked the part… buttercup fields surrounded the high walls, taking the mind back to the days when prosperity was measured in the height of your castle walls. Now it seems the birds also take note of the distance between the top and the soil below. Nesting sites are aplenty in all the cracks and crevices… as is the shelter from the rain.
