So we took couple of days and left our home here in lovely Co. Leitrim and went to see Westport. We bought bus tickets from the internet. There it didn't say that we have to change buses. Of course we were super surprised when the bus driver said that we have to change. It was his first time on this route so he wasn't sure where.

It took about an hour of steady climbing and everytime we looked up it seemed as if nobody could climb at that angle. We finally made it to the top, took ...

They must have been very tenacious people; there was the struggle to begin and get accepted in an area then once the place was beginning to get established they would be attacked or raided by various fractions: There were warring tribes, then later the Vikings plundering for whatever they could get, then the Normans probably for the same reason then eventually the reformation in the time of King Henry ...
