    errr, yes! we've met a few dogs that take themselves for a walk- they come to say hello and won't let you go 'til you've patted them and talked to them

    Your photos are so very beautiful Mumof2. I love seeing the places you've been!

    I LOVE the travelers! I did not see any caravans like that when we were there. It's great that they let you take their photo. Looks like they must lead a pretty rustic life.

    thank you Tink! Yes, I would think they do live a fairly simple life - i must admit i don't ever remember seeing a van like that before - i've seen the pony and traps alright, but not the travellers....

    i absolutely adore being up in the mountains, obviously they're civilised now with roads through them and houses dotted around the but when i get to a part where there are no houses i just love being there attempting to imagine how people lived there and travelled through them in a lifetime very long ago!

    i can't describe the feeling it gives me just being there - it's breathtaking and my photos really don't do the scenery any justice at all......

    I promise you, Mumof2 I share those indescribable feelings. They can't be put into words well, but Ireland grabs your soul and doesn't let go, doesn't it, eh?

    you're so right Tink, i never lived there but every time i go i feel so at home - possibly because of the family still there although we don't see them all, you know how families can be sometimes :rolleyes008:

    i didn't go for many years, since i was a young girl 'til i was maybe 20 ish, and then shortly after that Mum and Dad bought an old cottage with a big field out back - we used to go over a couple of times a year.

    we had some fun there, and froze in the winter! the first one up in the mornings had to get the fire going

    unfortunately my boys didn't get the benefit of it as it was sold when Jamie was a baby - it had got to the stage when all their visits were spent fixing it up, but my nephews had some fantastic fun there when they were young!

    yaaay! do it Dawn, you'll love it - now of course you'll find that some places aren't as nice as others but overall it's fabulous. you need to experience Ireland, you really do!

    Oh gosh. Having a cottage there would be so perfect. But I do understand about fixing up old buildings. I used to own a very old house. :sigh;

    There is something about that country. Once it gets you, it never lets go.

    I truly hope to be able to make it back to Ireland some day and take Donna with me. I was there in the 80's and drove an American car stopping daily in a local pub for a pint and spending nights in B&Bs. It is a beautiful country.
