Steps up the mountain

Do you have any idea where they went, back in the day?

Risa,

I don't know ... they go up Ailwee Mountain in the Burren, near the caves. I don't think they went to the caves, though, as they were only recently discovered. Perhaps they helped a farmer see his animals without slipping on the limestone -- trees and grass appear only in patches there, so they would have had to graze over some distance.
