~REPUBLIC OF IRELAND~


Glendolaugh Castle, Wexford, The Rock of Cashel and the Irish Sea

I have this friend, who lives in County Wexford and comes to the states for business about every ten weeks or so. Well, he promised me a pint of Guiness, if I ever got to Ireland. So the sole reason I went was for the beer! David and his wife Mary were gracious hosts for my first night and most of the second day in country.
Which is simply beautiful. Every direction I turned there was another photo. As it is, I averaged nearly 90 photos each day. I had rain on all but two days, but only once did it rain all day. My last day in Dublin was sunshine all day. I will go back. I missed so much this time. I'd like to spend a month or more there so I can do it justice. Thinking back as I place the finishing touches on this page and others, there are so many places I'd love to return to. You just can't do the world justice in 63 days. And you certainly can't do Ireland justice in only nine.

A rainbow over Kensale

Welcome to Cashel (out of sequence)
It was in Kensale that my B&B hostess told me about the 04's. All rental cars in the Republic have licence plates beginning with 04. So when the tourist season starts the news passed between B&B operators is, "The 04s are coming. They'll be skimming the ditches."
As most of us tourists are not familiar with left side of the road driving and right hand of the car operation, we tend to hug the side of the road. Thus, when oncoming traffic is present we'll sometimes skim the ditches along the side of the road. I certainly did my share of ditch skimming the first two days. I will say that for the most part Irish drivers are among the most courteous drivers in the world. (outside of Dublin heheheheh)
