Roo Demesne

One of my coworkers sent me the picture above.  It was taken on their vacation in Ireland.  I particularly like the cows in the background.

According to wikipedia the word Demesne describes all the land that was retained by a lord for his own use.  Apparently “Roo” is an anglicization of some unspellable/unpronouncable Irish name.  I was told the photo was taken while driving around Co. Clare, Ireland.

Ireland is somewhere I’d like to visit one day, seems like a place that a Roo would fit in.
