... was simply a way of promoting local artists and craft shops. Connemara National Park was the next stop on the Connemara Loop. It was a bastion for the seemingly endangered peat bogs which we had seen along the road in inhospitable looking land. It had a display that explained their history and the use of the peat. We noticed stacks of it in the fields and saw it close up. It is much lighter than I expected. Solid fuel heating seems ...

... to commemorate that visit too. A confusing site with the nineteenth century church backed by another church where the beatific vision occurred on the outside wall behind the altar. It has an interesting art display of the vision incorporated into the sanctuary back by the wall of the original appearance.

We had tea and coffee at Hayes bar, and I signed the same guest book that President Obama had on his visit in 2010. Then we jumped back in the car and drove to Birr, and Kevin showed me Birr Castle. I didn't get to go in because it was nearly lunchtime and we couldn't possibly alter our schedule. They took me to a small town just outside Birr called Crinkle, where we had an amazing ...

... course, we were also planning to do some hiking so we had our really big rain jackets, too.

In a cultural sense, Ireland was fairly surprising. Irishisms (can you believe that word doesn't create any sort of stir with the Word spellchecker?) are so prevalent the world over - Irish pubs, St. Patrick's Day, leprechauns, potatoes, shaved head/track suit combos, more Irish pubs, green boxer shorts - that I've always felt like I had a pretty good handle on things.
