March Theme Day: Green
There is a reason they call Ireland the Emerald Isle and it is on full display in these photos I took last summer on my vacation. This was at one of our stops as we drove around the The Ring of Kerry. I zoomed in on Loher Stone Fort, a recently reconstructed ringfort, also known as a cashel, in the distance. You can see how tiny it looks right in the center of my first photo. The ringfort dates back to early Christian times around the 9th Century. It would have been built as a defended farmstead and the circular outer walls are over 2 metres high. The inner part is made up of a large round house and a smaller rectangular house.
The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and the theme for this month is "Green". To see other CDP members' interpretations of the theme, be sure to visit the City Daily Photo Theme Day gallery here.

Yes Ireland is a real green country.
Ireland is a beautiful green! Lovely scenery and photos. Wishing you a Happy March! Enjoy your day, have a great weekend!
this is my first ever viewing of a ring fort, it is amazing. love all the Irish Green. when walking Big yesterday we noticed the 1/2 inch of rain we got two days ago has made our world turn green to
At first glance I knew we weren't looking at Florida! Beautiful Ireland...what a interesting place to live...as once our ancestors may have in the ringfort.
Good choice. It doesn't get much greener than Ireland.
Fantastic photos of the Emerald Isle. (I hope one day to get to visit there.) The ring fort is fascinating. Great stonework.
Glorious, wonderful greens!! So beautiful! And the ring fort is so cool! It looks in pretty good condition. I love round buildings. Our church is round, hat way the devil can't corner you, ha ha! But it really is round.
You can really see the green of Ireland.
They trade the rain for such fabulous green! Great shots of the ring fort too, Lois!
There's no problem finding plenty of green in Ireland. The ring fort looks very interesting. Nice shots.
Wow that is beautiful scenery!!!!
Beautiful greenery and the perfect images for the theme. Nice shots, Lois.
I love these! All that green looks wonderful!
So beautiful and green.
Lovely photographs Lois.
All the best Jan
Very interesting, can´t wait for green coming back here, too!
Oh, how well I remember that scene! :-)
Oh I knew that would be Ireland before I read your words Lois, gorgeous lush green images! Nice work for the theme ✨
