Spring in Dublin
We arrived in Dublin on a beautiful spring day with the tulips in full bloom and the sun shinning brightly. It was still cool, about 60, but when we were in the sun it felt great.
We took a tour that stopped at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Trinity College, and a great stop for coffee and scones. Interesting fact about Ireland, Catholics make up over 90% of the population but there is not a single Catholic Cathedral. Lots of Catholic church’s but none deemed a Cathedral. We attended another folkloric show that was terrific with Irish tunes and dancers and after a long day we were in bed early. Tomorrow, Cork, and a trip to Blarney and its woolen mills. No, we are not going to kiss the Blarney Stone.
