We had a crazy packed day today and we just got back to the hotel to drop our car off and catch a taxi back into town. Turns out, Wednesday night is the main music night of the week with traditional local music in all of the pubs! So, we're taxiing it to the pubs so we can drink and listen to music all night. I'll write more later, so for now, here are some highlighted pics from the day. AWESOME DAY! More to ...
... We got our rental car and opted for a diesel car instead of the 3-door vehicle we booked originally (p.s- I have no idea what a 3-door car looks like). We got some weirdo car brand equivalent to a VW. Diesel gets much better gas mileage and it's cheaper (not quite $7/8gallon) gas. Matt is the primary driver and I'm the navigator.

I figure I have the best chance of finding a coke with my name on it here in Ireland since there is a county that shares my name. ...
... We went to Dunmore East, which is a beach side area, had a tour of the beach and harbour which is a fishing port. We saw the oldest working lighthouse in the world from a distance. Saw birds that hatch annually before flying to the Arctic. The saying 'by hook or by crook' originated with Hook Head and Crook on the short side of St. John River. We passed a lot of new houses with thatched roofs. Off to Aggie Hayes family pub, Fay had 2 pints of Guinness, Kelly 2 pints ...
