Milltown Malbay and the Cliffs of Moher with Dave Hogan chauffeurdriven holidays

This morning we left Killarney behind as we began our journey to County Clare and Milltown Malbay where Pat's ancestors came from. The photo above shows the interior of the old church which had been built prior to 1840, where the family would have attended mass and other services. 

The wall plaques in the church showing the history of this fine building, some of it in Gaelic.(May the light of heaven shine on the parishioners and the clergy)

Seated outside St Brigid's well near the cliffs of Moher.
A study of Bruce looking out to sea at the cliffs.
Pat at the cliffs.
A thatched cottage in the Burren. Many of these old cottages were very basic, and not anything like the romantic idea many people have of them.
Pat on the Corkscrew Hill over looking the Burren, with Galway Bay further out.

Today was another good day and our visit to Milltown Malbay was most interesting.Finding the old church was easy, and it was from there that we were guided to the cemetery where we did find a Leahy grave bearing the name Bridgid, not Pat's great grandmother but more than likely a family member of a branch of the family. Once again we were fortunate with the weather and were able to really enjoy another day in the West of Ireland.
