Where do I begin to talk about our trip to Ireland? How do I ever show all the pictures I want to show when I took several thousand shots? We crammed so much into 11 days.
We saw castles, abbeys, and churches. Here we are at Blarney Castle and no we didn't kiss the Blarney Stone. We did walk by it though! And got soaking wet when a rainstorm hit just as we reached the top of the castle.
I was amazed at how many swans we saw. This was a huge flock on the Shannon River in Limerick.
And of course you can't go to Ireland without seeing lots of sheep. We saw the best Sheep Dog demonstration I have ever seen in my life. It was truly amazing to watch these dogs in action.
We saw ruins of medieval castles and houses at practically every turn in the road. This was the ruins of a church in the town of Cong where the Quiet Man starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara was filmed.
And what would a trip to Ireland be if you didn't see a Leprechaun? We happened upon this little guy beside the road. The baby donkey was just a few days old. Here I am with said Leprechaun. I have a big grin on my face because I had just received a kiss on the cheek from him.
