    What a gorgeous part of Ireland! The scenery in your pictures is simply stunning and the tips are excellent. I wouldn't mind being deported to Connacht if only I could.

    Your Mother and mine had something in common Michael. My Mum loved the movie the quiet man (and I saw it a few times too-Mums favourite scene-where Barry Fitzgerald surveyed the bedroom and shook his head saying "Impetuous". I laugh to think of it myself.

    A beautiful page on this lovely part of Ireland! I would love to tour it slowly like you did and enjoy all the sights. The closest I got was the Cliffs of Moher and a view of the Aran Islands from Doolin!
