The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Nice photos. The starkness works well.
A sort of Minihenge? You fellas certainly do come up with some interesting names for places. Makes me wonder what these were when they were something. Bet they've got stories to tell, eh?
Not as impressive as Seanhenge, but nice, Jams. Very nice ...Ha ha ha
Thanks everyone. But Sean, nothing is like Seanhenge!
Nice stones ^__^Great pictures......I like the black/white shots its old fashion look ;)
Beautiful pics! Looks like an enchanted place :)
Perfect in black and white, adds to the the mystery.
Great shots! Is there a mystery behind it?

Cork! One of my very favourite holiday spots, although I don't think we quite made it out of the city. We'll try harder next time!Cheers
Interesting photos! Thanks for sharing.
My daughter studied at University College Cork for a study abroad semester when she was an undergrad. I enjoyed her photographs from when she went exploring in the countryside. I will have to ask her if she went to the place where you took these shots because I vaguely recall something similar. These are great!
I was prodding ard a fire-accident site and taking tons of pics of the ruins. I totally understand your exciting w them!
Nice photos! Can't wait for next week ;)Happy WW!
Wa! The one in the 2nd pic looks huge!
Interesting! I have read about this place. I liked the second shot.
Wow, what great shots....love it. Happy WW:)
hey, I have seen this - I used to fly into Cork at least once a year when I worked! My husband lived there for a year as an expat!
Interesting stone structures. I wonder why it's called stone circle, I shall go read on it from the net.p/s: Jams come over and see a white peacock :)
What interesting folk the ancients must have been, eh? If only we could really know what they were thinking...
I find these stone formations very intriguing. They are visible reminders of ancient eras. Happy WW

Now I have some new vocabulary words:cashels, ringfort, fulacht fiadh, souterrain.Quite interesting....~~~Blessings~~~

amazing stone sculptures. happy WW!
It amazes me that so many of these are intact. If they could talk about the time they tell!
Beautiful. A little spooky, but also beautiful. Like a cemetary. These look beautiful in black and white too.Happy WW from Sara @ the Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!
Serenely beautiful. They arouse my curiosity. I'm glad you posted this, otherwise the only interesting rock formation I would have known is the Stonehenge. Thanks, and happy Wednesday.
Beautiful shots. The B & W are great for these.
I really want to sail across the ocean to visit some of these places. So interesting!
Love this, and the black and white is perfect for this. The lighting is wonderful as well!
Something Druidy perhaps? I like the starkness of it. Happy WW. :)
