Interesting Things in Ireland. October 6, 2013.

Went and visited some friends near Galway yesterday.

The Burren, County Clare, Ireland, Oct 2013

The Burren, County Clare, Ireland, Oct 2013

I was thinking it would be nice to go take a look at the Burren, an unusual area of bare limestone rock in County Clare.

Pat said it first, ‘I was wondering about going to the Burren!’ It was an exceptionally warm, sunny day. A great day to be with friends.
Especially after the two and a half inches of rain we got on Wednesday, and the soft day on Thursday punctuated by a few heavy showers. What was quite odd to me was that the thermometer was stuck at 60° for those 2 days.

Bob and Grace from UVM Extension were here for a week. Half work and half fun. The last day they were here we went to Powerscourt Gardens, a 50 acre

garden from the 1750s. It was another very warm Saturday, and the gardens were incredible. Here is Bob and I in the Japanese garden.

The Red and Green of Mayo, Sept 2013

I was up in County Mayo in September. Their Gaelic Football team was playing in the All-Ireland final in a few days. Mayo’s colors are Red and Green. They had plenty of pennants flying. Here is a fancy paint job on a cottage in town.

And some of the dry limestone stone walls in that same territory, this photo is right near the Mayo-Galway county line, not just sure which side of the line we were on at the time.

I was out for a 6 hour leisurely walk with about 20 people (including a couple from Chicago). It was another beautiful Saturday (remember there are 6 other days in the week). Here are a couple of photos of that fine day in the Blackstairs Mountains.
