I have been staying with a university friend of mine who is working in Ireland. We have travelled around the county of Mayo seeing abbeys that have Mass said in them since 1216, and ruins of old monasteries and churches.

... we found the place. No rush. Would you believe that the first Atlantic cable in the 1800's from the US to Europe came ashore just a few clicks up the road from our B&B?
