About us


Our names are Tara and Darren Mathews and we left Nottingham in England and bought a piece of land up the Slieve Aughty Mountains near Gort, County Galway in Ireland. Half way up a mountain, hence the name. Darren (me) is from the east coast of Ireland and left to live in England where I met Tara who is from Nottingham.

We got the idea into our heads to move to Ireland and live in the country. So we set off on a journey that led us to Galway for work and up the mountain for the view. We’ve put some photos on the website but they are lots more on flickr just to tell the story and you are welcome to look and comment. We have also listed some website that seem useful to us and might be to you. Hope u like it.



This site runs using wordpress with the cutline theme, flickr for photographs (with flickrrss plugin for the sidebar), del.icio.us for bookmarks (with link rolls for the sidebar).
