      The Deserted Village at Slievemore, Achill Island, that Boell wrote about, is actually a booley village and the cottages were, apparently, still used ‘within living memory’. Its history goes back to the 12th Century. As Gabby says, the ruins are eerie, in bad weather in particular. Well worth a visit. I’m disgusted with myself, though, that I didn’t know about Nangle’s Colony in spite of being a regular visitor both to Achill and to other Colonies. Must go to see it soon – thanks, Rob Cross and Gabby, for bringing it to my attention.
