Ireland - Thursday 23 July
Ah, suure the Blarney was flowing freely this day for we visited Blarney Castle and some of us (not we two) went through the assisted routine to kiss the famed Blarney stone. Vija reckoned that she did not need to do so. It is situated in a fairly large estate with attractions and the nearby shops are supposed to be some of the less expensive in Ireland (still expensive relative to Australia, of course).

The rain came and went again as usual and the other photgraph gives some idea as to how dark it can get.
