Kitsnaps: Blarney  

Blarney Town is lovely. I’d like to go back there sometime, actually, and take more pictures (I have millions of the castle/grounds. :)).

I want to say I've been loving all these marvelous pics (sigh, my one trip to Ireland was 43 years ago, but I have such fond memories because we drove all over the country and met wonderful people and saw so many beautiful sights!). We stayed for 4 or 5 days in Blarney, at what was then a brand new modern hotel, which I think is gone now, right near the castle and a beautiful, spooky grove they called the Druids' Close.

Thanks for sharing these!

Oh, thank you.

The country is veeeeeerrrrrrrry different from what it was 40 years ago. :)

Oh, I'm sure it is (so's the USA). My brother (he was there for third year of college at UCD, which is why we visited, apart from having Irish ancestry) has been back occasionally on business. The best story was when he went to retrieve some funds from his 1970 bank account, and the conversion difficulties that generated for the poor teller!
