We read the reviews on the fort and sheepdog demonstrations and decided to head out for the site. We were not disappointed as we walked right into the first demonstration with Greg and his three dogs, Sally, Rosie and Lee. Lee was seriously testing Greg's patience as she was of a mind to herd the sheep her way and not his way! We all had a laugh as she obeyed his commands about 10% of the time and he tirelessly called her back with voice commands and tried not to laugh at her antics.
The dogs herded sheep and cattle and Greg responded to all our questions with an easy smile and endless funny answers. He showed us how to shear a very fat ewe who wasn't all that keen to be sheared all the while Lee kept trying to "help".
The ladies at the visitors center were so sweet and helpful with our questions about the site and other Burren related things to see and do.
Our three sons; ages 20, 12 and 7 truly enjoyed the fort with it's ancient stones and stories as well as seeing the sheep herding live and up close.
