Before leaving for Athlone we did the Benbulben trail walk and attended a harvest fair at Lisadell House. Stall owners were selling everything from seaweed, cakes, beer, hats etc. we purchased a couple of original Irish caps hand made in Donegal. There were food stalls and music, a real country feel.

A tour guide allows you to enter 19 metres into the hill to a central chamber constructed from layers of huge stones balanced and angled with smaller stones between each layer with a massive cap stone at the top. Quite an unbelievable engineering and construction effort pre-dating the pyramids and ...
