Galway

Yesterday we journeyed through a countryside filled with stone walls made of pilings and lush green  fields dotted with sheep, horses, and even lamas. Occasionally, we saw a mare with her foal.

Galway is referred to as “The City of Tribes.” Home to 14 famous merchant families and an impotant city of trade, it is a friendly, bustling city with the feel of a small town. We visited St. Nicholas Church, shopped, and bought a few items at the flea market. I took a picture of a statue of Oscar Wilde.

We stopped at Coole Park on the way home, where W.B. Yeats and George B. Shaw spent a good bit of time. The autograph tree is carved with initials of many famous literary figures.

Today we visit the Burren and Cliffs of Moher!
