From the fox hunt in Cork to, what I suspect is out forring, salmon fishing in Lalholm wherever that might be? The sheer cliff with the ropes running down to it reminds me somewhat of Carrick a Rede in Antrim where the locals made amazing adaptations in order to get down to the sea to capture salmon as they ran past that coast!
