    These Spleenwort Maidenhair ferns were growing out of a stone wall of a ruined farm building at Cashelnagor in County Donegal.
     
    Once established, these slow growing ferns seem thrive on old walls and other dry places.
     
     

Botanical name: Asplenium Trichomanes

Cashelnagor – in Irish “Caiseal na gCorr” – literally means “Stone Fort of the Cranes” (or Herons). Cashelnagor is a townland in the Donegal Gaeltacht – the Irish speaking part of Ireland’s rugged, windswept northwestern county.
 
It’s a small area that nestles between the Derryveagh mountains and the more populated strip along the Atlantic coast. It was made famous by the poetry of Cathal O Searcaigh, a member of Ireland’s Council of Artists: The Aosdana, who grew up in Cashelnagor and has written many poems about or inspired by it.
 
The 1911 census lists hundreds of households in Cashelnagor. Now there are a scattering of houses, most of them empty. There are many ruins. The ruins on which these are growing is a particularly fine example.
 
The Derry to Dungloe railway line ran right past the yard around the house. A few hundred metres back up the track is the ruin of Cashelnagor Railway Station. The house was built of the same flat quarried stone as was used to build the walls and embankments around the railway line.
 
So I guess that the house was built sometime after the great famines of the 1840s, and after 1850 when the railway line was opened. Perhaps the first occupant had something to do with the railway. The last train ran through here in 1952.
