Someday I'll end up in the ditch. As I drive along these days I'm constantly peering over hedgerows and into fields looking for trees with character. This whitethorn/hawthorn is just on the outskirts of Kilreekil on the old main road between Loughrea and Ballinasloe. The trunk leans slightly into the prevailing wind and then kinks back before straightening out again.
