Here we are in Limerick for a little sightseeing. King John's Castle across the River Shannon. We learnt about the Siege of Limerick, but it went in one ear and out the other.
The Thomond Bridge built in 1840 is just wonderful. I am not sure if it was here where 'the incident' occurred but there was a narrow single lane bridge and I crossed the street behind a stationary car waiting for a car to cross the single lane bridge when the driver decided he hadn't left enough space for the car crossing the bridge, so he reversed without checking and backed into me. It wasn't a hard hit but I did jump out of the way very quickly.
Drumcliff Church. What is of interest here?
It is the grave of poet W. B. Yeats. While he was buried in France, he was exhumed and reburied in Ireland. I am sure it is a great story, so on yer bikes and find our why for yourself.
The Cliffs of Moher.
Sentry point maybe.
This is looking interesting.
Oh wow. 300 metres of towering cliffs.
A dry stone fence in need of a little repair. Note the wind bent trees in the distance.
We journeyed on to Galway, home of great cafes, oysters, music venues and more, so the blurb reads. We cruised on Lough Corrib. So far so good.
There were things to see and a commentary.
Ivy can be great fun, but you should never allow her to get away from you.
Yes it p..........precipitated down but in the UK, you try not to let that worry you too much. Only once did rain spoil something for us, yet to come, and with hindsight, we were pleased it did.
A talented performance and then demonstration of Irish coffee making. I disagreed with the Irish coffee making method. It was just luck that I had this lass with her feet off the floor.
