He said Bally meant end of the river. He told us that Ballyshannon isn't really at the end of the Shannon...there are two ends of the river Shannon. Mary Ann told us they used to enjoy cruising down the Shannon River. She said the countryside was gorgeous. I immediately ...
... here, The Pie Shop".
Wasn't really hungry but thought if I can have a pie then why not. However would you believe it when we went in, no they did not have gluten free pies, just some cakes and in fact they didn't sell any meat pies at all. A Pie Shop, I ask you!
We settled for an icecream instead and as it was only a few more kilometres to Westport we ventured on hoping to find a nice place on the harbour to put our feet up and relax for the rest of the day.
