Ireland 1993
landhouse in the middle of nowhere

Visited some friends in Ireland who had this old landhouse somewhere in the middle of the country.
Rich history everywhere around. Ancient ruins and graves and a lot of tales and stories within the pubs during the evenings.
But the best of all was the library room within the landhouse, where I spent my time on rainy days.
The pure decadence: Books and magazines back to the eighteenth century covered the walls around up to the roof.
The whole room was coloured in bordeaux red. There was an open fireplace too.
And the only thing that filled the empty space inside the room was a big snooker table.
A pity I didnīt make a shot of this.

Yes, what a story there is here. I, too, wish you had made a picture of the library! Sounds wonderful. Best wishes.
