Killarney to Kinsale with Dave Hogan Chauffeurdriven Irish tours
Liz and Jim, just finishing their breakfast in the Killarney Plaza this morning.
Relaxing by the fire in the lobby area, just before leaving for Kinsale.
Liz wanted to see the Celtic crosses in a cemetery, and this one in Macroom was perfect.
The old English fort in Macroom. This area was a very Republican area, and a strong English military force was needed here.
Bandon was another town in the heart of Republican Cork, and in this photo you can see a memorial to an Irish soldier.
One of the lovely country roads we travelled along today. This photo, showing the trees growing over the road, and forming a tunnel, is known as a Dingle Dell.
This Grotto at Ballinspittle was the scene of the moving statue when people visiting the grotto claimed that they could see the statue of our Lady moving.
Liz on the bridge as we entered Kinsale.
This training vessel, went aground in July off the coast of Cork,and eventhough completely submerged, was refloated and brought into the harbour at Kinsale. Unfortunately it will have to be scrapped.
This lady really seems to be having the time of her life. Yes.....that's our Liz, and it looks like Jim is enjoying the performance.
Jim and Liz on the hillside overlooking the harbour, and the town in Kinsale.
The entrance to our hotel in Kinsale.
Summercove, a lovely little place that you pass through on your way to the fort overlooking the town.
