Land of Leprechauns and Poets

Edenderry.

Mullingar.

Ceanannas.

Bailieborough.

Enniskillen.

The Mullet.

Inishbofin.

Downpatrick.

Bloody Foreland.

Glencolumbkille.

Carrickmoylenacurhoga.

 

The lyrical names of places and hamlets in Ireland is mystical as well as poetic.  Is it any wonder it is the home of leprechauns and poets? 

48 hours and I will be on my way to the home of my ancestors.

Have a great time!  I'd tell you to take notes, but with your memory, you will just let it all sink in and bring us back all the stories of your adventures!  Can't wait to hear all about it!  JAE
