Easily over-looked by the locals of Ireland, yet strangely conspicuous and peculiar to the visitor, the stone walls of southwest Ireland divide the landscape into a quilted pattern of beautiful greens, browns and occasionally yellows. Tourists and visitors often inquire about these short, unstable, beautiful walls. One may initially propose the walls serve as a division of property. Perhaps, they serve as an organizational method for various types of livestock. However, the real reason for this magnificent display of stone walls across the Irish landscape is a practical and annoyingly obvious vindication one may be embarrassed of not thinking of immediately.

The stone walls of Ireland are a beautiful and extraordinary display of the hardworking mentality of the Irish people. They are also a breath-taking site there to remind both locals and visitors of the histories of the brilliant country in which they were built.
