TWO TREES MAKE A ROUNDABOUT

THE TWO TREES




There are two well known trees in the West Cork seaside village of Castletownsend.



Unusually, they form a roundabout in the middle of the main street. The current pair was planted by the community in 1987 to replace the two that formed the original landmark and which were planted, it is believed, in 1810.



Didn’t know previously about these trees and was wondering where to drive as I came close to them today. Interesting to say the least and a good reason to visit this cul de sac West Cork town. Mary Ann’s restaurant is apparently another but that was closed in mid-morning.
