O'Brien's Field II, Finny, Co. Mayo© 1996 France Scully Osterman..........

This field lies alongside Lough Mask, tended by sheep who graze on its steep slopes. The landscape of Ireland is patterned by these stone walls, which help keep sheep from grazing on neighboring properties, most of the time. The walls may also, perhaps, provide a place to put the stones which cover Connemara.
