Muddy in Loughrea


The other day I went to the west of Ireland with one of my humans and our friend Maureen to a place near Loughrea in County Galway.  We went to visit another friend called Mark Boyle, who apparently is famous for being the 'Moneyless Man'.  I don't know what is so special about that, I have never had any money myself and I am almost 7 years old!  Also you can't even eat money...  Now he does have money though and a lovely house and a big, muddy garden.  Instead he has now given up computers and telephones (which I still don't think is very special... I only use the computer to write this blog)


He doesn't live in the big house though, but in this small one:




One day we went for a nice walk through the woods with lots of other doggies, which was fun.  There we discovered the ruin of a very big house, which used to belong to an English landlord, who the locals didn't like much.  So they burned his house:




At night we stayed in this house that used to be an old pig barn and is called the Happy Pig.  I wasn't allowed to sleep on the nice comfy sofas though because I got so muddy playing outside.  I was a wee bit upset about that.
