... some of the group doing an Irish dance in the middle of the street.

The next at we took a bus and then ferry out to Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands. Here we hired bikes for the day and road around to parts of the island. The first stop was where we managed to see a seal or two. They were quite hard to spot but I have a photo of at least one. It felt a bit like playing Wheres Wally! The seals definitely camouflaged well in with their surroundings. We then ...

... One of the mayors, James Lynch Fitzstephen, pronounced his own son guilty of murder in 1493 and hanged his son himself when everyone else refused to participate.

Bank draft in hand we proceeded to Maynooth Motors to find the manager was away, when he eventually arrived some 30-40 mins late he was going over all the facilities of the van only to find that many of them did not work properly!!!

We stayed one night in Galway and two nights in the Burren. Before we arrived to Galway, we had tea and lunch at a spectacular castle, Ashford Castle in Cong, County Mayo (north of Galway).
