Burren

The Burren is a region of County Clare, Ireland, made up of a huge bare limestone sheets.
Its name is derived from the Irish term "An Boireann" meaning "The Rocky Place."
During Cromwell's campaigns in Ireland one of his generals said of the Burren "There isn't tree to hang a man, water to drown a man nor soil to bury a man".
Some of the oldest historical monuments in Ireland can be found in this area, dating back 5,000 years to when the Great Pyramids were still under construction.
