活動內容

We'll make a short quarter mile hike to the location of an old estate wall that was built by over 200 men during the hardship of the Irish potato Famine in 1847. Standing at almost 3 miles long and enclosing over 300 acres, this unique Famine landmark was commissioned by the kindly local landlord, to provide work for his starving tenants as their potato crop failed. They were paid a penny and a turnip a day for building the wall before many emigrated to North America shortly thereafter from ships leaving Galway Bay as the Famine worsened. Over the course of your experience you will learn the stone building techniques required to restore this part of Ireland's heritage to its former glory. And in concurrence with Galway being designated as the European Capital of Culture 2020, this experience allows you to actively participate in saving a cultural reminder of the Famine from disappearing from the landscape. Afterwards, all participants are invited to sign the restoration ledger, that together with the section of wall you build, enables you to leave a lasting record of your efforts in restoring this part of Irish history, as well as leave your own lasting imprint on the Irish landscape...that will stand for centuries after you return home!

My father and I have been building natural stone walls without cement all our lives. I am an active member of the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland and have been involved with many stone restorative projects. County Galway where I'm from, is one of the few Irish counties where each field is enclosed by traditional Irish stone walls. It is our long term aim to restore an 8 foot high stone wall that was built during the Great Famine in 1847. This extraordinarily long wall represents one of the few remaining visible traces of the potato Famine that exists in the country today, and bears silent witness to the most catastrophic event in Irish history, when over one million died and one million emigrated to the new world in America.

體驗地點

Guests start at a local farmhouse and walk a quarter mile to the site of the wall to be restored. You will be shown how to select and lay each stone. I'm confident that after a short period you'll learn the ancient Irish craft of building walls without cement! Buses leave regularly from the city to Claregalway, which is nearby. The website www.getthere.ie is best for checking out public transport. A taxi costs approx 35 euro from Galway.
