Today we left Kinvara, on another lovely Irish morning. Is there anywhere where the air is nicer than the West of Ireland, so clean and healthy, and fresh, and flowing in from three thousand miles of Atlantic ocean. Here we have no industrial pollution, no traffic fumes, no wonder i love the West of Ireland. I do love the mornings here, my special time of the day.
A blue Irish sky, over the Aran Islands, barely visible in the heat haze.
Adare is one of Ireland's most beautiful, and popular towns, and renowned for its quaint thatched cottages. Here we have, from the left, Gracie, Carol, and Drew, posing outside one of these lovely cottages.
This old church, now the main parish church in Adare, and an old Trinitarian Abbey, founded in 1230, is a really beautiful church, and more than worth a visit. It is located right on the main street in Adare. Once again we have my pals, pictured outside this magnificent church.
Here we have Carol, on the left, and Gracie, on the right, pictured at this shrine to Our Lady, inside the church. Here you can light a candle for a loved one, living or deceased, or for any special request you may wish to ask for. Carol and Drew lit their candles, as i did myself. What a nice thing to do, and a prayer never harmed anybody.
Another view of these gorgeous cottages.
How nice to know that these cottages are preserved, as so much of our ancient structures were demolished in the past.
My group, pictured in the lovely park in the center of Adare. Just look at all the beautiful vegetation, the flowers, the trees, the green grass. Do you not envy us our sunshine and showery climate? Long may it last.
Today was another great day for all of us, and i know that my pals have already fallen in love with Ireland. You have to come to see it for yourselves, and if i can help in any way, just let me know.
