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

While I was taking this photo another photographer walked down the slope just out of shot to shoot the beach at Cuminole! Winners of the free […]
