A postcard from County Wiclow showing sheep in the Wicklow Hills, 10 miles south pf Dublin.
I was surprised to spot this Irish postcard recently at the Postcard Collectors Club meeting. Not a usual scene but one I happen to know. Greystones is a charming little town about 25 miles south of Dublin. It was a popular destination from the North particularly.
