Returning will be bittersweet as we have lost more of our wonderful Irish clan, my two beloved Uncles passed in the last few years and they were the true characters of Ireland! Nonetheless, I want my girls to see and experience the land that I loved and where I spent some of my best days as a child. We will be staying around the Ring of Kerry this time and will briefly visit Birr and Tullamore to see family. I cannot wait!
Here are a few of my very favorite spots that I still remember from my childhood. Erin Go Bragh and may the luck of the Irish grace all of you this fine day!
|The favorite photo of myself on the left and my sister Lisa, already a big dog lover!!|
|I loved Birr Castle, I pretended that I owned it as my sister and I ran a muck throughout it's ground!|
|Although my grandfathers house is gone I was happy to find one very much like it online and this one is in Fivealley, N. Birr just where my grandfathers was!|
Another tid bit about Birr is was featured in the wonderful Oscar Nominated Philomena!
|Do make it a point to visit Ireland , you wont be sorry I promise!|
