Picture: The power of erosion
 
Art or practicality?
by wicklore  4 Sep 2015
When rainwater slowly erodes the flat limestone pavement of the Burren, it sometimes forms shallow bowl in the rock. Sometimes the shallow bowls erode further and penetrate the layer of limestone rock entirely. Sometimes someone (landowner presumably?) picks up one of these layers of rock with a hole eroded entirely through and stands it upright in a gryke (fissure) in the limestone pavement. More often than not the upright rocks placed in the grykes are solid and are dotted around the landscape. For what purpose? I suggest it is an attempt to keep livestock from stepping into these fissures and breaking a leg. My picture shows one curious example I spotted on the northern slope of Aillwee Hill.
