St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary's Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance.

I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?

Abandoned Dingle Trawler

Abandoned Dingle Trawler

Right on the pier in Dingle are two trawlers that are slowly falling to pieces. The one pictured above is severely burned, windows burned out and broken. Moss grows on the deck amid the rubbish.

I can’t believe it’s still there. It was there last year when we visited, and may even have been there the time before that!

Slea Head Statues

Slea Head Statues

There’s a statue of Christ and associated figures on the cross at the top of Slea Head in County Kerry. I’m not sure who erected them but they’re a prominent part of the headland there.

I thought I had posted this photo of waves crashing down at Couminole Beach before but no, I have posted several shots of waves at that exposed Atlantic beach but not this one!

I rarely mention WordPress stuff here but if you haven’t upgraded your site to 2.8.4, read this post by Matt. Please upgrade, you’ll be hacked otherwise!

Penn Stivien 671km

Penn Stivien is 671km from this town in Kerry. I can’t remember the name of the place now, but they have a bar/restaurant there that serves fabulous food. I don’t remember the name of that either. 🙂

An Fear Marbh san uisce

An Fear Marbh

An Fear Marbh, or “The Dead Man” in English lies off the coast of Co. Kerry. I posted another photo of the island taken on the same night as this one here, but it was such a beautiful evening I took quite a few shots!
