Sheep Alert

The big news in Ballyvaughan yesterday was how the sheep escaped from their pasture near our cottage and started eating the grass around the graves next to the church. I watched a couple of people chase them madly back and forth until they managed to get all of the sheep to take the plunge and leap through the gap in the wall, normally reserved for humans traversing the stone fence. Once back in their pasture, the sheep were asked why they had done it, and they had replied, with only one or two dissenting, that they had wanted to get closer to God.
