House in the Mournes

Originally uploaded by rossrossrossross

Stumbled upon this little gem on flickr.

This house can be found on the way into the Mourne Mountains on the path from Carrick Little car park. Apparently it has an interesting little bit of history. This is alleged to be the house of the Irish Giant; Patrick Murphy. 8 feet and 1 inch tall!
