Today we left Killarney behind as we began our journey to Kinsale. Our tour is now nearing its conclusion and i must say that the time flew bye and i will miss the Rooney's when we part company in Dublin tomorrow. I would have to admit that my computer skills have improved to such an extent through the tutoring from Terry and DiAnn that i now will be including computer courses next year for my clients in my tour itineraries.
Irish cemeteries are noted for their High crosses, the famous Celtic crosses. Here you can see just how popular they are. This photo was taken in the cemetery in Tralee.
This is our hotel in Kinsale, the Kinsale Carlton. Its location, overlooking Oysterhaven Bay, is really lovely and you are away from the hustle and bustle of the town, and yet quiet close to all the action, if that is what you want.
Here we have DiAnn and Terry pictured on the hillside overlooking Kinsale harbour.
Here you can see the town of Kinsale in the background....and if any of you think that it always rains in Ireland....just look at Terry's marvelous tan.

Looking out along the bay to the entrance to the harbour.
Well, it is my Blog after all and i am entitled to appear here, am i not?
Success at long last....we found the Leprechauns hideaway. Look at that beaming face....a believer at last. I am afraid i cannot divulge where this photo was taken as Terry has forbidden me from releasing any information. He plans to bring groups over to Ireland next year from the USA on Leprechaun tours, and retire from computer lessons, as he feels that there is too much stress involved in that. I must admit that i found it stressful also.
How about this for a picture. If you get to Torc waterfall in Killarney you will find this stairway leading up the mountainside from the waterfall to the top of Torc mountain. I think that it looks like a stairway to heaven......and i suppose that that is what a trip to Ireland is anyway.....a stairway to heaven.
I hope that Terry and DiAnn found it so.
