This is not a great picture because it was taken with our mobile phone. Well done Al! I didn’t have the nerve to ask.
Silly but I’m a little obsessed with this machine. It’s the ‘robot drug dispenser’ from the pharmacy at Achill Sound. It’s a first in Ireland apparently. I love the bright white surroundings, the clean glass and the rows of little bright boxes. It’s just like an art installation.
Years ago, Damien Hirst was part owner in a London restaurant called The Pharmacy and there were artworks there that in a way were very similar. To me, visiting the chemist at the sound has started to feel a little like a visit to a modern art gallery. It’s a great addition to the area in my opinion, a thing of beauty. Although there is a lot of natural beauty around here, it’s nice to see some man-made beauty for a change. There’s not a lot of that. In fact I can’t think of anything. In this area, man’s intervention generally ruins the place.
