Oughterard in July

I have to admit that this year the weather is rather good compared to the last 5-6 years. 


This very fact, I noticed, certainly attracts far more tourists than usual. This is vital for Connemara since most of the local businesses rely on the summer trade to survive. Hopefully this year will be good for everyone!!!

So I grabbed my camera last week or so and walked around town to take a few snaps.

Here is what I found. Enjoy. Oughterard in July - green, lush and colourful. 


I started out on Cregg Road and admired the green.
