Where I stayed
Crystal factory had a look around the show room at the wonderful cut glass, we then at 10-30
went on a factory tour with Karen it cost 8 euros it lasted about an hour and a half, how skillful these men are and very helpful had a chat with a few of them, they work 4 days on & 3 off then 3 days on 4 off. Lorraine and I held the NBA finals trohpy, they do have 2 of every trohpy they make
Waterford crystal went into receivership last year but was bought by American financers and
re opened this year they also own Wedgewood & Dalton brands, of course we bought a few
"Bits & Pieces" We then drove on to The Rock Of Cashel in the light rain, when were walking
around with our guide it stopped very lucky.!! what history Chaple built 1127 the painting on the
walls and roof 1134 a large Flemish 15 century Tapestry and 13 century Gothic tower, we drove
onto Tipperary which was disapointing to us too much heavy traffic and not visitor friendly.
Then on down to Cork which is a big busy place so around that and into Kinsale which looks
an exciting place we had to park in the street and not a lot of room.
