The Ring Fort. In Ireland we stayed at Cill Rialaig in a pre famine cottage on the Atlantic coast.

All about us were the ancient remains of other civilisations.

We walked the footprint of the ring forts, mapping them, and it seemed like the drawings of these maps were womb like,

which is perhaps signifiant in ancient civilisations to honour and feel safe with the mother.
