Today we visited Croagh Patrick, a mountain that tradition says that St Patrick had a 40 day retreat on the summit in the 400s. It was raining, windy and cold so we didn't climb it. This evening we went to a performance of Handel's Messiah. Such beautiful music! I travel to Dublin tomorrow and fly home on ...

As the name implies, it is at the end of the peninsula and is reported to have cliffs as spectacular as the Cliffs of Moher ...
... an abbey then, of course. Probably a fishing cabin or something like that. He built it for his wife, as the story goes, but it is in primo fishing country so us guys will just let the ladies think it is for them. Makes for smoother sailing on the fishing grounds. He probably could have bought her a new Hoover or a blender. Anyway, he spared no expense, as the pictures will show. He also built a mini-cathedral ...
