May Day

FlowersFirstly happy May Day. This is just a quick post to share a couple of photos. The first one is whins (or gorse) hanging outside a house. It’s an old tradition to bring good luck to the house, this is the first time I’ve seen it in Sligo. You can read more about the traditions on Sligo Heritage, you need to scroll down the page.
