Quality Irish Meat

A SuperValu lorry delivers produce to their store in Dingle, Co Kerry a number of months ago. While the rest of the country basked in the first rays of a beautiful Summer we were lucky to get two nice days out of seven.

Love the area though, and the staff of the Dingle Skellig Hotel took great care of us!

Rest in Peace

A hand written notice strung up on a pole at the corner of Winthrop Street and Patrick’s Street in Cork records the names of those killed by Israeli commandos recently.

Time for the train

A clock suspended from the roof of Heuston Train Station, Dublin.

The odd thing about travel is that I’ve probably been in the US more times than I’ve been in Dublin, and certainly have been in London.

Patient or not? A dog waits as his owner chats at the farmers market in Blarney on St. Patrick’s Day this year. More Photos.

Abbeystrowry Cemetery

Abbeystrowry Cemetery is located near Skibereen in County Cork. It is the site of some of the mass graves used in the area during the famine around 1845.

I didn’t know, or had forgotten there was a famine in 1740/1741 when 400,000 people died. That many people died on this little island of ours in such a short time? The mind boggles.

The Snow Dog

Oscar our Shih Tzu is as comfortable in snow as he is in any other extreme weather. He’d rather be indoors in the warmth!

It snowed heavily and steadily today in Blarney. We took Adam out in it after wrapping him up warm and he played with the kids down the road, throwing snow around, messing with a bucket, and generally having fun.

Hi Mairead! Glad you follow my blog, you should comment some time! :)
