Artist's Description

LAST STOP FOR PETROL

This shot was taken near Muroe in rural Limerick Ireland.

Obviously the new highway had done away with any local passing traffic and the business ground to a halt, leaving a rusty red Texaco pump in the “forecourt.”

There’s an old Irish song about using up resources and the inevitable decay which ensues when they’ve gone, it is called called Kilcash which inspired the treatment of this picture, the opening lines of the song are :

What shall we do for timber
The last of the woods is down
Kllcash the house and its glory
the bell of the house is gone

Kilcash an Elizabethan manor house in the Irish towered style still exists as a protected ruin and they’ve planted forestry nearby so the woods are coming back . From the house you can see the extensive apple orchards owned by Bulmers Cider. othing added but time as they say in teh drinks ad, sans plumb!
