Slievemore grave decorations

More Achill island

I visited Slievemore cemetery on Achill island looking for more subjects for my graveside decoration project. The area of Slievemore is famous for (rather morbidly) for a deserted village.

The shells of over fifty homes dot the mountainside. The area itself has seen human occupation for 5000 years an several megalithic sites are found just beyond the village. The story of the areas depopulation surrounds a terminal decline that began in great famine in the 1840's and ended when poverty and emigration combined with severity of life on an Island in the north west Atlantic finished the job.
