Couldn’t help but take this photo, which I normally would not, as I don’t find these concrete water towers as attractive as many of the beautiful ancient buildings in the Netherlands. Most water towers in Ireland look like this. I think because they are not as old as the ones in the Netherlands? Probably because in the early days everyone in Ireland had his own well, or waterput, or pump next to the lake or river.
Even where I live now, I am not connected to the main water supply of the nearest town. I have my own well. Therefore the water contains a lot of iron, hence is a wee bit brown-ish every now and then. We do not use it to cook or drink, we have bottled water for that.
Anyway, this is one for Ginnie.
