Ireland

Ireland had always been on my list of places to visit. Lesley and I had the great fortune to hook up with Jonathan and Karen for a week on the Southern tip of the Emerald Isle.

Our B&B between Kinsale and Cork We had to stop at the Jaemson Old Middleton Distillery for a tour and tasting.  Jonthan stopped for a quick picture at the entrance gates. Here is the entrance to the Jameson Old Middleton Distillery. Our Jaunty Cart ride, great fun in the rain On the long voyage across the sea, tight quarters and sea sickness was common Lesley does a 'quick' check of email at the pub Mark graduates from Wiskey U! Jonathan racks up yet another diploma.  The coast of Ireland- another Dramatic Coastal View (DCV)

We had a great time driving around southern Ireland and visiting points of cultural, historical and geographical interests

<p>Malin Head (Irish: Cionn Mhálanna) is located on the Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, Republic of Ireland and is the most northerly point of the island of Ireland. The northernmost tip is the headland named Banba's Crown located at latitude 55.38ºN. Malin Head gives its name to the Malin sea area. There is a weather station on the head, which is one of 22 such stations whose reports are broadcast as part of the BBC Shipping Forecast.<br />
<br />
Ptolemy's Geography (2nd century AD) described a point called Βορειον (Boreion, &quot;the northern&quot;) which probably referred to Malin Head.<br />
<br />
Banba's Crown on Malin Head is the most northerly point of the Irish mainland. Banba was one of the mythical queens of Ireland. Banba's Crown is about 16 km (10 mi) north of the village of Malin. The island of Inishtrahull is further north, located approximately 10 km (6 mi) north east of Malin Head. Further north still is the most northerly landfall of Ireland, Tor Beg rock.<br />
<br />
Tower at Banbas Crown that was used during war times.<br />
Malin Head is home to small businesses such as pubs, restaurants, shops and a large call centre called Forward Emphasis International, which employs many of the local residents.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/elevationair/">elevationair ✈</a> posted a photo:</p>
