The Past onto the Past

Fairy forts are common place in Ireland. Usually remnants of an iron age dwelling, they are raised enclosures, often with a ring of trees marking the boundary. However, they are most famous for being the supposed home of the fairies and even to this day, farmers are reluctant to touch them. Stone walls are feature of many parts of the country, particularly in the west but also in areas of North Meath. Some of these walls were built in famine times as a way of relief work for the poor. In this illustration, we see the echoes of those who built these walls, overlooked by the reminders of a more ancient past.
