Castles, Abbeys, Oratorys and Graveyards | Ireland 2010

Well this is the last of three posts about Ireland. If you haven’t seen the others. The first post was about Mary and Steve’s gorgeous wedding. The second post was a conglomeration of personal vacation photos, some taken my me others by Susan and the rest by Katelyn, those can be seen here: Ireland We spent one full day crisscrossing throughout West Central Ireland, Co Kerry, in the area known as the Burren. In a very ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ fashion we climbed stone fences, crossed cow pastures in our hunt for lost castles of Ireland. What a blast we had and we brought back some interesting finds. Here is but a sampling of what we found.
