As you travel around Ireland you will from time to time come across a tree or bush by the roadside completely covered in rags or scraps of clothing. You have just found a rag tree.
In Ireland hanging cloth on a tree is a very old Celtic tradition. Rag trees have a mystical reputation.
The area around Connemara, Galway is about 60 - 90 minutes drive from me. Not a motorway drive either but a drive through some of the most beautiful Irish countryside. As soon as you get past Brackloon wood outside Westport, a new photographic treat lies around every corner.
