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.

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

<p>Built in 1707 and closed to vehicular access in 1977.  Shawsies as the locals sometimes called this area.  Rumour has it there’s a man who frequents this area called Monster Man who drinks tins of Monster under the bridge as he stands with his dog called Oreo!  Bet you’re enlightened now lol!</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/gcampbellphoto/">gcampbellphoto</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Seeing so many snow pictures,  I had to upload some myself.   This is from March 2018 looking outside my front door.   This could happen again this year,  late season snow after an unsettled winter.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/conflats/">Conor O&#039;Flaherty</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>🌍 #ReisenImKopf: In 80 Bildern um die Welt. 🌏 🌎  Im Temple District in Dublin werden die Iren bereitwillig einem weit verbreiteten Klischee gerecht: Ausgelassen sein und bis in die späte Nacht hinein fest trinken. Vielleicht hilft der Alkohol, eine gewisse Schwere der Geschichte, die sich im irischen Leben wiederfindet, zu überwinden. Die Zugehörigkeit Irlands zur EU und jetzt noch der Brexit hat die Insel, die über Jahrhunderte eigentlich eine britische Kolonie war, selbstbewusst gemacht. Mit der Ansiedelung amerikanischer Tech-Unternehmen von Intel bis Apple und Facebook wurde Irland zum bevorzugten Brückenkopf amerikanischer Konzerne, was nach einem Jahrhundert irischer Migration aus Armut in den letzten Jahrzehnten zu Wohlstand führte, mit einem (überwundenen) Rückschlag durch die Finanzkrise. Auch sozial hat das bisher schwer katholische, konservative Land beachtliche Änderungen durchgemacht: Als erstes Land der EU legalisierte es homosexuelle Ehen durch Volksentscheid, so wie es als einer der letzten EU-Staaten Abtreibung und Scheidung liberalisierte. Dublin ist eine lebenslustige, attraktive Stadt, die sich am besten auf den Spuren von James Joyce Ulysses durchwandern lässt -- eine App bietet sich dazu als Führer an.<br />

<p>On a wet and pretty miserable day in Dublin, and most of the North and East of the country, O'Dea takes us down South to a rainy day long ago. A man in a Mac (that was a Mackintosh raincoat long before Apple) passes a lady in a very old-fashioned cloak on a street in Bandon, County Cork.<br />

<p>This was the scene one morning about 2 weeks ago.  It snowed down on a severe frost which was not good news for anyone who had to travel.  As it is Ireland, the snow was gone by lunchtime!!</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/157220357@N08/">FergalSandra</a> posted a photo:</p>
