... peninsular, then back thru Belmullet and headed for somewhere mid Ireland. We passed by the church where the wedding was and there was a huge traffic jam, as mass had just finished. Cars parked nonchalantly either side of the road in any direction, no room for passing. We spotted Brendan's mum, Dolores, and said farewell to her again. An impressive town along the way, was Ballina, could not ...

Under a tomb you could see skulls of dead people if you put your flashlight up to the hole. I didn't try this, but some people did. It amazes me to see some of those old abbeys because of the architecture and how old they are. How could people do such beautiful things to stone back then with no technology? Colum ...
