In a lovely garden just outside of Shannon (not my sister)
Three crazy squirrles
The Pied Piper of county Kerry
Interesting stalactites in the first cave we went to, dubbed by the owners as "Ireland's Premier Showcave!"

Just hanging around

I want this for my yard. Too bad it belongs to Daniel O'Connell
Gigantic Devil's Club
Most of the road along the Ring of Kerry was this type of 1-lane, cliffside, bike-trail-sized death road equipped with tour busses to pass every couple of miles. I'd have rather preferred a go-cart to a car.

An eager cattle-dog at our farmstay outside of Dingle
A famously bizzare road along the Dingle Peninsula
The Ogham Stone, where people swearing to one another oaths would stand on the graves of the anscestors and touch fingers through the hole in the stone. This be big swear.
At the Cliffs of Moher
And that was the last time they were ever seen....
The tall, rotten limestone Cliffs of Moher
A dramatic Irish sea
The Burren, "where there are no trees to hang a man" but there seem to be enough rocks to stone him to death.
An ancient table-like structure in The Burren
All the mussels had crabs
Enjoying the night life at McDermott's Pub in Doolin
The Caeli Bandits at McGann's Pub in Doolin
The Apalachian Hippie at McGann's
Twins at a touristy castle/village (ID later)
One last guinness, and its back to the UK
