Recupero in Connemara July 2019.

Connemara was where the Recupero's were headed today on another really nice day. Our weather has been really nice recently, and looks fairly settled for most of the days ahead, but of course the farmers are already praying for some rain.
The village of Cong, in South Mayo, bordering on the edge of the Connemara region, was the center of a very early monastic settlement, and here we have some of my group inside this ancient church.
Cong was also the main center for the movie "The Quiet Man".
John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara were the main actors in that movie, and these statues here, were erected to commemorate this famous couple. The statues are on the left, i think. The other couple are GiGi and Zack.
The Corrib is the largest lake in  the Rep of Ireland, and is located between counties Galway and Mayo. It is said, that there are 365 islands on the Corrib. A great lake for salmon and trout.
What wonderful weather we have in Ireland, so much sunshine that you have to wear your sunglasses indoors. Here we have Sheryl and Elva, enjoying a little off duty fun in the west of Ireland.
                       What a lovely picture of this very lovely young couple, GiGi and Zack.
    From the left here, we have, Kyle, Elva, GiGi, Zack, Greg and Noah. Anybody seen Sheryl?.
                            Yes they have.  They found her in the pub with Greg, GiGi and Zack.
                                     If you want a figure like mine..........send me a message.
                                    Kyle looks happy indeed with his little drop of whatever.
    Who's a happy girl? This lady is in party mood, and Ireland is a great place to party.

My latest tour began yesterday, when the Recupero party arrived in Shannon from the Boston area in the USA. Needless to say, they were very tired after their long journey, but still had enough energy to travel to visit the popular Ailwee caves in County Clare, before being taken to Kinvara, on the border between Clare and Galway, where they had a house rented for the next week. At this stage, they badly needed a rest, so we left them there to do just that, before,Elva, one of my most popular driver guides, collected them, and brought them into Kinvara, for a lovely meal in the Pier head restaurant, down by the harbour in Knvara.

Here we have the full party, happily seated in the Pier Head, with their fine steak meal on the table, waiting to be sampled as their first meal in Ireland.
These are a really lovely, and most friendly group, and i am sure that they will enjoy their time in the west of Ireland, on the Wild Atlantic Way.
From the left here we have, Greg, Kyle, Zack, GiGi, Shirley, and Noah.
Welcome to Ireland guys. Have a lovely vacation.
