Tea, Bread, and Jam...and some Irish Dancing

A travel blog entry by bwells


After a very stressful day of travel, Stephen and me finally arrive back at the house. Much to our surprise, there was the local priest in the house leading a Rosary, waiting for us to get back so he could say the Holy Mass.

We had a very good guide who gave a totally balanced perspective – we couldn’t tell whether he favoured one side or the other.
