Beschreibung    English

This is a very interesting and nice location on achill island which is well described in leaflets and travel books. there are still excavations in this area.

you can park beside the burial ground on south. for a nicer view and walk you can come from the north west near by a stone pit by the end of a gravel piste (53.994° / 10.0972°, decide by yourself if its o.k. for your car, we did it with a normal car). there is an old trail along the village from the cemetery to the stone pit.

there seem to be a "cache" beside this cache hidden long time ago by a shepherd, so dont confuse the caches.

Several weeks ago I read Heinrich Bölls „irisches Tagebuch“. He described his hikes through the deserted village very poetical. When visiting Achill Island, I wished to see this place with its ancient houses. Today Reisegern and me came here from Dugort. The sun shone through the clouds and painted bustling patterns on the hills. Sheep were grazing between and inside the houses and ruins. Moorland herbs spread on the walls. What a bizarre but beatiful scenery. Before searching the cache we walked until the path's crest and enjoyed a great view across the opposite bay. Then we went back to the cache location, found the small box and had a cosy break. We listened to the silence around, accentuated by the wind blowing through the grass.
We removed all the waste inside the cache (and some at the cache location) and cleaned it. Unfortunately the logbook is still wet, however it's possible to sign it. For the rest everything is in order.
Thanks a lot for the cache in the deserted village. I enjoyed some good hours. It's peaceful here.
