I know this scene, it is like the Delphi Fishery but I do not think it is, T. C. Kingsmill Moore, would know precisely. It is definitely associated with a fishery in the West of Ireland. We have the scotch pines, all the fisheries in Connemara seem to have them, I wonder why?
won the race to identify the location for this photo, we are at Glendollagh House looking at Lissoughter Mountain or ‘Cnoc Lios Uachtair’ as it’s known in Irish, meaning ‘hill of the upper ring-fort’ it is situated between Lough Inagh and Recess. The Lake is known as Garroman or Glendollagh Lough.
