The Burren Code

The Burren Code
Signs promoting the Burren Code in English, French, Italian, Polish, Spanish and German. Apparently visitors to the Burren tend to break pieces of the limestone pavement to make little cairns. I've no idea why. In the background you can see two of the Aran Islands in the distance.
