Who writes this blog?
That’s me – Karolyn – hello! I split my time between two places – a farm in Northern Ireland and a flat in London. This blog covers both places, plus my temporary home in India in 2012 and 2013.
If you want something more tightly focused on Northern Ireland, have a look at my other blog – Townlands of Ulster.
What is a drumlin?
A drumlin is a small hill, formed by a retreating glacier. Drumlins are sometimes described as egg-shaped, but I like to think of them as soil-covered giant potatoes.
Distant from what?
Me, because I’ve never settled on the drumlins.
One local musician, Duke Special, captured this in his song “Brixton Leaves”, when he said that his home was a distant drumlin. Find Duke Special’s wonderful music on www.dukespecial.com.
Can I use your photos?
Karolyn Cooper takes the photos, and writes the text, on the Distant Drumlin blog. If you want to use or copy any of the material on this blog, you need my permission. Go ahead and ask – I will probably say yes. You can use the contact form on this page.
