One of my favorite memories of visiting Ireland was visiting the ruins of RahinnaneÂ Castle in Ventry, up in the hills outside Dingle.
To access the castle, you pay 5 Euros to park at a nearby farm and walk out across a field dotted with sheep. A boy from the farm came with us and brought along a few border collie pups — who in short order started herding the sheep — herding them directly at us!
I managed to retain my composure — even while a herd of sheep raced directly at me — and shoot this video:
It was one of the highlights of a trip filled with strange, poignant and unforgettable experiences. Yes, that’s my wife in the background saying, “Oh, sh*t… watch out!”
