Ireland
« on: April 30, 2016, 10:16:13 pm »
We recently spent two nights in Northern Ireland and two nights in County Donegal.
We walked around the intact city walls of Londonderry (Derry) and found ourselves looking down on the Bogside area where large murals are being painted on the gable ends of the houses there.

In County Donegal we walked up to the Slieve League cliffs which are said to be the highest sea cliffs in Europe.

Some views of lovely walks in County Wexford.
We went on the ferry from Holyhead Saturday to Saturday (August) and were very unlucky with stormy weather and cancelled crossings in both directions!

Lovely photos Hollins and nice blue skies too.   I hope that the weather while you were in Wexford made up for the stormy sea crossing.

By the way DVT beat me to answer the quiz by 4 minutes but I did use Google too

Looks like a great trip Hollins. MOH and I took grandsons aged 10 and 12 to Duncannon, County Wexford last summer on a last minute break when their original family holiday plans went awry. Our accommodation was a minute?s walk in either direction from the beach and harbour. We visited Waterford using the car ferry across the River Suir. We spent the day meeting a Viking, enjoying a virtual reality Viking experience and exploring the city. We also went kayaking on the River Slaney, played footie golf and crazy golf and visited the Hook Lighthouse which I recognised from your photo. I?ll try to post some pictures but having difficulty posting when I try.
