Ireland, Part Five

We returned the CPAP machine Jamie had been loaned. They didn’t charge us anything!

Jamie and I walked down to the river next to where Jamie’s mum lives.

We picked (and ate) lots of delicious wild blackberries.

We did Kinder Surprises.

We went a long way and ended up in Tipperary.

We went to Cashel Farmhouse Cheesemakers and learned about the history of their farm and how they make their blue cheeses. We also ate a ton of blue cheese.

We went to the Rock of Cashel. It’s an amazing, huge medieval religious fortress.

The pictures don’t do the place justice. It is truly awe-inspiring.

When we came down from the Rock of Cashel, there was a group of young buskers playing traditional music (on the way up a young man was playing a fiddle).

We went to Kilmallock, a medieval town that still has several stone structures and part of the wall. Their Catholic church is gorgeous.

We went all over the Abbey. We were even able to climb some very old stairs up to the second floor.

The old Church of Ireland building is now a burial ground.

So that was Monday and Tuesday.
