From Inishmore, Aran Islands.
We met this guy as we were walking up to Dun Aengus fort. You never know when you’ll meet cows or sheep in the Irish countryside, as there are so many and they just tend to roam all over, and lines between private vs. public lands are often blurry (especially to the animals).
The ground in the Aran Islands is very rocky, so to make fields for grazing and farming, much of the rock has been pulled up and put into lovely little stone fences everywhere, miles and miles of them. You can see several in the foreground and background of the picture.
