    We spent a few days on Valentia island with my cousin Russell Orpen and his wife Maureen, who are always great hosts and good company. Ron played golf at Waterville with Russell, while Maureen and I walked around Knightstown, the village they live in on Valentia.

    ... that the town he wanted was on the schedule, in Gaelic. I managed to explain to him the situation. I believe both their strong accents, one Irish, the other middle eastern, was making it harder to understand each other.

    ... Cliffs.

    There was then a quick stop at Our Lady Grotto at a slate quarry.

    Then we stopped to learn about The Skelligs. This is where Monks decided to live. They built three sets of stairways (620 steps each) around the island.
