2017-07 Ireland – Clonmacnoise – slide show

Dear friends and readers,

please enjoy this year’s Clonmacnoise impressions – where the past merges into the present – under the ravens’ watchful eyes.

Peace, coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘



Where in Ireland (2)…

Dear friends and readers,

Today I have another teaser from our July trip. Most of you know this feeling: “I just had to capture this!”

Little hint: The river Shannon is not far. The ravens watch over the site, have done so for a while.

Happy guessing!

Peace, hope, coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘


There in Ireland…

Dear friends and readers,

All right – it is time to solve the mystery. Drum rolls, please:

The photo I showed you in my earlier post was taken in Kilmallock.

Kilmallock (Irish: Cill Mocheallóg) is a town in the southern part of County Limerick, Ireland, near the border with County Cork. There are a Dominican Priory King John’s Castle in town. The remains of medieval walls encircling the settlement are still visible. The Dublin–Cork railway line passes by the town, as the station is closed, travellers will have to use the nearest train station in Charleville, a few miles south-west of Kilmallock.

We spent several nights at the “Deebert House Hotel” – a great place to start our daily trips in all directions.  :mrgreen:
