I attempted to visit Ballyheady Cairn ( Co Cavan) today .We didn’t quite make it. The area is planted with conifers ,which makes it harder, but the area is worth further investigation . I suspect that we will feel, as a community in the future, that planting this area was a mistake. I planted a few woods and trees in the wrong place in my time. Ive cut down trees that should have been left. Rip and burn is not good practice.
What made me think of mistakes and learning was discovering Cathy Fitzgeralds blog “An art an ecology notebook” on word press. her video on utube “burning bright” was interesting.
