... not be able to go. The weather Wednesday was just awful - very low clouds with drizzle and periods of hard rain, so we decided to take Chase to the Jameson Distillery and Blarney Castle. We missed the turn to Mallow on the way and got horribly stuck in a traffic jam through Macroom because of road work in the middle of town.

Even though I didn't want to leave, we were on to our next stop, Lady's View which was made famous after Queen Elizabeth visited. ...
... Megan and Colleen were AMAZED at this process and the fact that Julie even lived on a cow farm. I tried to explain to them that we have farms in Barre and I knew that this was the process. Colleen thought that they still used their hands to milk the cows...not a machine. Needless to say, coming from Barre I am able to relate more to Ireland living than those city girls. Other things Colleen and Megan thought were ...
