    Oh, now you know the charm of Ireland! Both my husband’s and mine were from Ireland where we were privileged to go in 1991. Your pictures brought back so many wonderful memories. We stayed at Bed and Breakfast places mostly in the middle of Ireland. The brogue comes to naturally to my tongue that I had to watch myself not to answer in that way. We didn’t visit large cities just small ones like Galway and Wicklow. People were so natural and friendly and real. No pretense there! We watched them cut peat, visited the Cliffs of Mohr, and sat in a farm house with a family who just invited us in for a visit. As you found in Northern Ireland so we found in that small village farm house there are still feelings of bitterness against the British and how they handled the Great Famine. But what a lovely. lovely people and country. SO glad you got to go and experience first hand the Emerald Isle!

    Oh Rebekah … I love your post. My paternal grandfather came from Ireland in 1906. I talk with my cousins over there to this day and they want me to visit. I’m scared to death to fly. Your post makes me want to experience all that you have experienced. I hope I get the nerve! Thanks for all the great pictures! Carol

    Thank you for sharing all these wonderful photos and your thoughts on Ireland. I had visited the Emerald Isle back in 1973. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was rather chilly, though, and all I had to wear beside my one pair of jeans were miniskirts.

    Oh how I LOVE Ireland, my ancestors are from Ireland and we were blessed to go there years ago..I LOVED every bit of it..I love their sayings, we were fortunate and got to visit the Waterford Factory, The Belleek Factory, and Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, and so many more places…just Beautiful…and I too was afraid of flying but my husband made it easy, he told me these wise words….”either you will get to Ireland like you have always wanted, or if the plane blows up you will get to see Jesus face to face…” made it so much easier,,,you see we went 3 weeks after 911…
