The best part of Ireland? The Irish -- they drink, they sing, they flirt, and they tell stories. In general, the people are charming and spirited with a deep sense of tradition and a high regard for friendship. The countryside is rolling, green and lush. The weather is sublime.
I took a total of 863 photographs, a few of them good. I visited the Rock of Cashell, and rode a jaunting cart through Killarney National Park. I watched a parade of High Nelly bikes in the town of Abbeyliex.
I had tea in a tiny yarn shop in the town of Naas and listened to music in a different pub every night. I walked about 100 miles a day. In Dublin City, I visited The National Gallery and The National Museum of Deocrative Arts.
