Leaving Cork and hopping a train back to Dublin. . . . .

Packing the bags again this morning and heading to the station soon.
Train back to Dublin this afternoon through all that beautiful brilliant
 green countryside. Oh Ireland, you have stolen my heart!
Yesterday we took a bus south from Cork city to the coastal town of Kinsale where
we had a great time . . . . . . . so warm and sunny that the red-haired, pale
 skinned Irish were soon sunburned and everyone was licking an ice cream cone!
More pix later from Kinsale which was a lovely visit.

Back in the city our evening, once again, was filled with traditional music, 
on the streets and in the pubs!


  1. So pleased that you have had a wonderful time Mary - I thought that the Irish and their countryside would capture your heart

  2. Beautiful photo collage! You have a lovely blog. Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  3. How very special to have the trip be filled with music.

  4. This looks so fun, Mary! I can't wait to read more on your impressions of Ireland. I'm wondering if you've ever been.

    Safe travels!


  5. And did you kiss the Blarney Stone Mary, as we did?
    Irish music has always been part of my life especially on St Pats Day!
    I found warmth and a great sense of fun in the people I met in Ireland.
    It seems like you have too!

  6. Cork is where my ex's mother's family was from (corcorans of cork) and my ex father now deceased father in lawy's (The Kennys) were from Kilkenny I believe. maybe one day my kids can go there. :)


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
