More Ireland Pictures






I was asked to share more Ireland pictures, so while I'm home (with my broadband), I'll upload a few.  We took hundreds, so I'll try to get some of the best ones.  Enjoy--and click any photo to enlarge. 

Explanations:  not all the "ruins" in Ireland are tourist attractions--some are simply on the side of the road, and you can pull over and prowl around them.

Blarney Castle.

A mixture of old and new at a Tipperary cemetery.  I don't know why, but this picture moves me.

That castle is amazing. Beautiful but also a bit foreboding, ominous and creepy. . . I can just imagine a scene from one of you Cahira books taking place at a place like that.

It amazes me what they built so many years ago without modern equipment.

Have a good trip with your husband!

I, too, am struck by the picture of the cemetery. You can learn a lot about a place by strolling through a cemetery. And it's a vivid and sobering reminder that "dust we are and to dust we will return.'

Beautiful. Very green.
