the leenane cultural center



On saturday afternoon, we visited the leenane cultural center. The main theme of this cultural center was sheep, and their sheering. First we watched a film on Conemara, which was as boring as the documentary " chasse et peche " . Thankfully, Mr G helped us to get away .Then a woman (who had a passionate relationship with sheep) taught us about the different types of wool and the modern and traditional ways of colouring and weaving it. She demonstrated her weaving talent. She gave us all a bit of wool.
