Hungry Hill With A Talcum Powder Scattering Of Snow On Tuesday.


 I went for a walk on the main road yesterday and took the above picture with my mobile phone.  I captured a rainbow on the right and the cloud just about to deposit a cloud on top of Hungry Hill.

Hungry Hill is over two thousand feet high and its Mares tail waterfall is the largest in Ireland and the UK.

It's over on Beara Peninsula across from us here on Sheepshead.  Behind us is Mizen Peninsula. 

Daphne Du Maurier wrote the book "Hungry Hill" about copper mine owners.  There was also a film of it starring Margaret Lockwood.

It was good to have a four mile walk, look at the view, not get wet and listen to some Prog Rock on Spotify through my earphones.  I never saw a soul to talk to except some kind motorists who pulled out and indicated when they drove past me.

Ireland in the countryside next to the sea is a nice place to be when it's not blowing a gale or raining.   Today it's throwing it down. Spent the morning potting on and watering in the polytunnel.  Roll on Spring.  I hope we can go on a sun holiday next year.

  1. I haven't heard of the book 'Hungry Hill' but just looked it up. I'm going to give that a go, I do like Daphne Du Maurier.

    1. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542

  2. Hi Briony. Daphne Du Maurier was a friend of gentleman farmer Christopher Puxley. His Irish ancestors owned copper mines over at Allhies. Quite a lot of Cornish miners worked there. They mined on our Peninsula for lead and silver and copper and also on Mizen. A lot of the miners went to Butte in Montana.

  3. "Watering" in the polytunnel? Why don't you go to the toilet like what us civilised blokes does? The Sheep Shed must be a fine place for country rambles - especially when the weather is decent as it clearly was yesterday!

  4. That's what the compost heap is for YP. It's a good place for walking,isolation and admiring the views. Ireland is jaw dropping beautiful but it gets more than it's fair share of rain like today. Think I will treat myself to a new "rainy day" set of hiking waterproofs for Christmas.

  5. I also love Daphne Du Maurier and have never heard of the book. It will be added to my own reading list.

    On a side note, do you see that Netflix has redone 'Rebecca'. I have only gotten to watch the first 20 minutes. I keep getting interrupted by he who must watch football, and the little who has decided that he wants a snack. Someday, I will be alone, and I will watch the whole thing in one sitting. You know...like normal people watch movies.

  6. Hi Debby. You can find the film of Hungry Hill on You Tube. I will look out for 'Rebecca' on Netflix. I see very little football these days on terrestrial television. I haven't seen a good film for a while.

  7. You had great weather there for walking. We have strong winds and rain today, yet again. My Sunday walk was freezing with a layer of ice on the roads, but at least it was bright that day.

  8. Hi JayCee. Yes but it's horrible here today. It will be two years in February since we went to the Algarve. I love holidays during winter.

  9. We got a good walk in yesterday - four miles round trip to the post office - but the scenery was not a good as that.

  10. Good for you Tasker. I have to go for a walk at least once a week.

  11. Ah, I need a poly tunnel to satisfy my fresh food cravings....yes I can get tomatoes in December, just not good ones!
    We have had a few lovely storms since moving here last spring, but I suspect winter on my little ridge will entail more than a few, and lots of rain. In the meantime, its a lovely place to live!

  12. Hi Kim. The best thing about having a polytunnel, greenhouse or potting shed is you can still potter about when it's too wet or rough to garden outside. We get some awful storms too.
