West Cork, Ireland

So, at last here are some photos. This was the first morning, on Barleycove beach, just outside Goleen, where Sheila lives.

I think you can see James' mum Joan (right) was very pleased to see Sheila.


As I sat knitting in the window, this was my view, out over the Atlantic. Unfortunately yarn shopping oppertunitites are few and far between in Ireland. But I did do some actual knitting. For those of you who are familiar with the Shipping Forcast, in the distance is the Fastnet Lighthouse. We had a clear view from the house, but it's too far off for this pic.


It was lovely to go up and see Elli and Eddie in Galway. They met 5 years ago when Sarah, Elli and I were travelling in Ireland (sorry for the grainy pics!).


This is my favourite view, just outide Killarney, when we were driving back from Galway.

And, I really wish I could have bought this......


A great trip, as ever, I love Ireland.

Ireland really is fab! Definately all the best people come from there ;)

Your pics made me feel quite homesick.

Glad you had a lovely time!

We were supposed to all go to Ireland with the in-laws this summer, but had to put it off because of dad, but hopefully next year!
