happy st. patrick's day!


A Shamrock For Luck ... and some highlights of the Dublin and Irish countryside I love...


Molly Malone in Dublin - where she pushes her wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow... Here is the Dubliners' version of this unofficial anthem:


The Cliffs of Moher on the west coast, where I once ate peanut butter sandwiches while listening to a man sitting on the cliff playing his uilleann pipes--the Irish bagpipes.


The beautiful library at The University of Dublin Trinity College, home to the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four gospels in Latin, circa 800 A.D.


Two well-known stops to be made in Dublin: the Jameson Distillery and the Guinness Brewery




Passage Tombs (chambered cairns) dating from some 4000 years B.C.


The Countryside--rolling, rocky, barren hillsides


Gorse--the beautiful, tenacious flowering plant covering much of those barren landscapes.


Remnants of the past - the deserted castles and churches covered in greenery


Dublin's St. Stephen's Green: an oasis of peace in the city


"May the wind be always at your back"
