Sheep herder near Kilcar, Donegal

This man was herding sheep in Churchtown, Kilcar, Donegal. He told me that he had been shearing all the previous day and invited me to help. I told him that it had been almost forty years since I last sheared a sheep and was not yet ready to start again. This is very near St. Cartha's Church. Traditional Irish hats made in County Donegal like the one he is wearing are available at

Kilcar NEXT

A man wearing a traditional Irish wool hat and Wellies is standing 
 in a pasture with some sheep that have been recently sheared. There is
 a fence with an iron gate and a tree beyond the fence. A black and white short haired sheep dog is lying in the grass resting
 and watching the sheep. The dog is keeping the sheep near the man.
