Ireland

I took a trip home to Ireland last week. It was lovely being back seeing family and friends. Since moving away I am really able to look at Ireland with fresh eyes and appreciate the things I took for granted even though the country is falling asunder! I felt like a bit of a tourist, I can really see why tourists love Ireland, you just wouldn't get it anywhere else. For example we came across a horse fair while we were staying in Ennistymon, a small town in County Clare. There was no law nor order, cars, people, horses, donkeys, wheeling and dealing all happening along a small narrow street!

The Burren is near by and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it again and the weather was actually on our side for once! Here is a little taste of County Clare, my favourite county in Ireland...
