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, from 2011 to 2017, plus my temporary home in India in 2012 and 2013.
I stopped updating this site in 2017, so if you want to see more recent photographs of Northern Ireland, you can find me on 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.
