Turlough O'Bryen's legacy


Just about 100 years ago Turlough O'Bryen was cycling up and down the Congested Districts of the west of Ireland.

In Connemara this year, I came across this apiary, tucked away in the corner of a field, doubtless part of his legacy. Their forage was heather and blossoms in the hedgerows -- not an agricultural crop beyond pasture in sight.

Maybe Turlough would have celebrated with a Guiness, or would it be mead?
