These tiny yellow flowers, each with four petals, are called “Tormentil”. It is a fairly common Irish wild flower, found on a heaths, moorland and coastal regions. Its botanical name is: “Potentilla erecta”.

This one is seen sprawling across large limestone rocks near Dun Aengus Stone Fort on Inishmore in the Aran Islands. However it is not a limestone-specific plant – I have seen them on both peaty-acidic soil and on the limestone alkaline soils.

 
This is part of my new postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .
