    ... Kitty O'Shea's Pub. Very traditional and very large meal portions. While we were eating there were two men singing Irish songs to entertain the patrons. After we finished our meals the publican got up and sang a few songs with our tour director. He had a very good singing voice and probably could have saved some money by sacking one of the singers. Rolled out of the pub and bused back to the hotel about ...

    ... quilts and layouts for quilts. This is just a pleasant evening, watching them enjoy each others company. Once again the Irish seem to be so warm and inviting people. Everyone includes me in the conversation and I have a marvelous time. We head back to find the guys watching car racing.

Stay tuned for the ...

    ... cathedral on top of a limestone outcrop. At the Rock of Cashel, you can see for miles in every direction. The price of admission includes a tour of the cathedral and the grounds.

It was funny to hear this same question several times throughout the tour. This site is quite impressive just by its sheer ...

    ... match but that wasn't on until the next weekend. Instead we got to watch Gaelic football, Cork vs Dublin. It was definitely a Cork supporters pub so we cheered for Cork. We were most definitely the only Americans in the pub. We think Kinsale is a get away spot that the Irish citizens head to. Cork lost but it was an exciting match even though we didn't know the rules. C and M showed up towards the end of the match. C had a cider and M just sat with us for ...

    ... and this is not flat country so we soon climbed. I wasn't sure how my legs were, but they were okay early on and I made some ground on the fast starters. Some time before I'd decided that it would be useful to see my half mile splits, to see if my theory that I have a slow first half, then a quick mile, then slow again, was true-looking at mile splits can't show me that. I changed my autolap on the garmin then didn't race for some time, so kept getting lap ...
