The Wall

The most prominent feature of the Aran Islands is the millions of rocks that work to define property boundaries and keep livestock in place.  This is why it seemed so odd to me to find a section that was apparently made of concrete.  Could this have been a sign of wealth?  When the islands are basically composed of rock and rock is used for everything rock can possibly be used for, why create an entrance of concrete?  There is certainly history here, but this may be a piece that will remain a mystery.
