What a busy day we had! It was a long day in the car but saw many wonderful sights. I'll get to the sights but first must comment on Ireland's various roadways. After 6 days driving, I think we finally have figured out their road system. There are 'M' roads that are 'motorways'. Not many of them in Ireland but gets you from point A to point B …

It is believed that the tombs were used for many centuries then sealed up and rocks piled on top of them. Over the intervening centuries thick vegetation has grown over the rocks. The surrounding area is now peat bog but possibly wasn't at the time the tombs were made. Blanket peat bog goes up the hill sides and tops as well ...

... had. We (my sister and my mom) swam at about 7:30 in the morning, and we swam once at night with Lynn too. Mom said that we were probably going to sink to the bottom of the pool cause of all the food we have been eating ( and the gelato ), but surprisingly I didn't. Only I did seem to be best at doggy paddling at the moment. I would zoom down the lane! We swam laps for a good while, and raced some, then to the hot tubs for ...

... used for meat and for mowing. I will have to ask our sheep farmers today! (Our B&B is on a sheep farm.). We also asked what "Bally" meant as there are SO many villages with the Bally prefix. 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.
