    ... was simply a way of promoting local artists and craft shops. Connemara National Park was the next stop on the Connemara Loop. It was a bastion for the seemingly endangered peat bogs which we had seen along the road in inhospitable looking land. It had a display that explained their history and the use of the peat.

    ... us over good, but it is something that is required because every rental company and insurance company in the free world knows that a tourist has a snowball's chance in hell of returning a rental car undamaged in Ireland.

    ... a hairdressers at the bottom, on impulse I went in and she immediately cut my hair! €15 (about $24), and it's now just like it was when I left. (Must be ok, I was in a pharmacy later in the day and two assistants got me to wait while they found another to tell her it's how she needs hers!!!)
