Modern Irish farm below the Rock of Cashel

JS: This picture was taken from the southeast side of the rock, near the ancient monastery of Hoare Abbey that becomes the focal point for St Patrick's Day week. It becomes awash in lights and fireworks that are enjoyed by thousands on holiday.

Ed: The context of the picture says it all with the new beside the ancient. The modern farm is typical in having reasonable storage for its haylage, in addition to the ubiquitous Toyota Carina and Land Cruiser vehicles. The JCB dumper completes the set. I like the way that new and old Ireland happily co-exist.
