Had a lovely visit and talk at the Drumcliffe Cemetery and visited the grave site of W. B. Yeats. Love the view of Benbulben Mountain here. Next we went to Galway where we had a cruise on Lough Corrib. Checked into our Salthill Hotel were we are spending the next two nights.
Today we visited the amazing Giant's Causeway, Old Bushmills, and Dunluce. Going to get a complex. Had to evacuate Bushmills for fire alarm. Yesterday had an alarm at Titanic Belfast. Nice night of music at hotel after dinner.
Today we went to Belfast. Really enjoyed our visit to Titanic Belfast. Saw the Belfast Studios where parts of GOT is filmed. Had the real Belfast Experience during our city tour. Very heavy police presence when Loyalist were protesting a republican parade. Unfortunately I still can not transfer photos from my camera. Then checked into Derry's Tower Hotel where we are spending the next two nights. Heard traditional music at Pedar O'Donnells before our hotel dinner.
Had a great day. Thanks to Gerry Cooley for the tour of Dublin and walking us to our gate at Croke Park.
What an exciting game! Real heart stopper. Took some great photos but due to a poor wifi connection I am unable to transfer from my. Hopefully I get to post at a later time. Great Job Lions!!
Today after landing in Shannon airport and meeting the rest of the gang we paid a visit to the Cliffs of Mohrer where you could not see thing. Then to Dublin city to pick up our game tickets. And early night at Ballsbridge Hotel to rest up for game day tomorrow.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
So sorry to see our adventure come to an end. Could not have asked for a better group of travel mates or a better driver /guide, Aidan. Was a fantastic holiday!
This morning we paid a visit to Hill of Ward, where Halloween started. It was the meeting place of
Anoch, the great Celtic public assembly and festival which was held on Samhain, October 31st, All Souls Night. There were signs of many people and the bonfire from the 31st. Next we visited hill of Tara which was one the residence of the High Kings of Ireland. 142 kings were said to have reigned here.
