At Horse Island

I have spent most of the day working at a piece of land owned by the National Trust beside Horse Island. Horse Island is about two miles south of Kirkubbin on the Ards Peninsula. The townland is called Rowreagh.

I'd say that Horse Island is equidistant from Kircubbin and the Saltwater Brig Pub.

We have spent months - though only the odd day - clearing this land of gorse, thick undergrowth, ivy, briar and overgrown bushes; and we are almost finished. The boundary is nearly clear and the perimeter shall soon be ready for new fencing.

It was hard work; but, despite there being a mere three of us, we got a lot done. Everything in the picture has been cleared; and that is just a small section.
