Jostles planted the seed. The cherub made sure that it grew.
Mary Kearns has written on the Jostle Stones in Ennis. Two years ago, I met Mary and learned the name. I knew what they were but had not had reason to put a name on them before.
Since then, I have been photographing the Jostle Stones around Cork that I have seen on my travels – for future uploading.
Then last January, this lovely casting came into view and I was beset with yet another collecting bug – cast iron protectors, or wheelguards.
To date, I have found and uploaded 10 locations. They can be viewed HERE.
Tom Spalding wrote in 2009 that there were 29 so there are still quite a few to be found. A summer of cycling and walking beckons.
