Hussey’s Folly is a castle like building on the Dingle shore, County Kerry, Ireland. A relic of the famine years of the1840’s, it was the idea of Edward Hussey, who paid for the construction. He lived at Lough (now McDonnell), and the sole purpose of the project was to give employment to relieve some of the distress caused to locals. The building had no special purpose. In this wide angle image you can see Dingle harbour and town in the background just along the shore. In Dingle, Irish (gaelic) is the first language.
