Cullintraw Day

I've spent a wonderful day in the lovely County Down countryside, at a field near Castle Espie known locally as Cullintraw.

This field is beside an estuary, in the Ulster townland of Cattogs.

There were about fourteen National Trust volunteers and staff today.

Our task was to clear the field of rushes which we had cut a month ago.

These rushes had been made into stacks, so our tractor and trailer took most of them away.

I lunched on banana sandwiches and coffee; and some of us brought some treats, viz. buns and crunchy biscuits.
