Garinish Island GlengarriffWell done, the slippery and narrow steps inside the Martello Tower got a light! (thanks to the Minister!) And the exhibition of ancient artefacts from the Bryce/Peto collection in the Casita looks great (only the description was placed too far from the respective artefacts).
