This time last year we were getting ready for our three-week trip to the Emerald Isle. I don’t think I’ve ever anticipated a journey more. I was so excited to visit the land of my forefathers. It had been great fun planning it.
As it’s St. Patrick’s Day I’m posting a few of memories of that trip. Others can be found in past and future posts. Check out yesterday’s … a nod to the Irish National Stud.
Have I mentioned I love Ireland!
Inch was one of the biggest surprises. I never imagined such a beach in Ireland.
A wall of collectible Guinness bottles was a feast for the eyes at the Guinness brewery in Dublin. Here are just a few …
These naughty lambs in Kildare had escaped from their field and were playing on the road side … baaaad …
Johnny Foxes in Glencullen in the Dublin Mountains … the “highest” pub in the country … famous for its traditional music and and for being one of Ireland’s oldest pubs … and for numerous chamber pots suspended from its timbered ceiling … 😉 …
Exercising horses on a busy, narrow main road outside Dublin … my horse would have an opinion about that …
And finally, for this post anyway, here is mystical Glendalough, one of my favourite sacred spaces in Ireland.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’m beginning to believe that you are in fact a Nomad! Do you even have a permanent residence?? 😉
Ya reckon? … 🙂 … Thanks for your comment, Stu …
I haven’t been to Ireland, but I do love that part of the world and some day I hope to see it again. These images certainly show much of the character and history of a wonderfully cozy part of the world.
You’ll love it when you do get there … I can promise you that. … D 🙂

Dear Dorothy: what an interesting experience. For point of reference, where are you from? It’s a big small world outside. Take care. Marc Marrs

Dear Dorothy, Up in Canada I bet you have a cleaner outlook. Yours is a great country. Some time back I enjoyed your Calgary Stampede. The further I drove into Alberta the cleaner everything was. stay adventurous. Thanks. Marc Marrs
