          ... a bowl too much and ruined it! "If it's not perfect - it's smashed". There are no seconds at Waterford. Some magnificent pieces were on show. Andrew is the only Australian to hold The Ashes trophy this year!! (apologies for the blurry photo).
          Waterford is a pretty town; it would have been a nice place to spend a night. The waterfront had lots of tourists milling around.

          ... lived here for hundreds of years until the 1930s when it was no longer habitable. The Ormondes were friendly with distant cousin Queen Elisabeth I and her successors. In 1967 the current Duke of Ormonde 'sold' the castle and grounds for 50 pounds to the Irish State, who renovated and refurbished it. The grounds are beautiful with a Rose Garden in the back.
          Across the street from the Castle is the Stables, which have been repurposed into shops ...

          ... ended up heading towards Waterford so we thought what heck we shall visit Waterford.

          We then decided to head back towards Kilkenny and visit Cahir Castle on the way.
          Now I have to say this was our favourite Castle in Ireland.It was the only Castle that was not taken over, that was until the invention of the cannon. You see the castle was ...

          We're stopping at Kilkenny for lunch. We see St Canice's Cathedral which dates back to the 12th & 13th century. Grey sandstone buildings in Kilkenny that with constant wear in some places resembles polished marble. We also see 13th century Kilkenny Castle. Some went for a ride on a little street train built for leprechauns but we walked through a pretty street and had lunch in a little cafe up on their roof terrace in a sunny spot. Lunch was a lovely ...
