Inis Mór - Dun Aengus

We used one of our days at Galway to travel out to Inis Mór (Inishmore), one of the Aran Isles. It's a beautiful wild place with ancient forts, ruined churches, and nothing whatever to stop the fierce winds coming straight off the Atlantic. The next parish over, as they say, is New York. One of our stops was Dún Aonghasa, or Dun Aengus, a prehistoric fort dating from the 2nd century B.C., built with four concentric rings on a coastal promontory.
