A Few Photos from the Ireland Trip

Here are a few more photos from Ireland last month!

Remember, you can click on any photo to enlarge (a new window pops up).

Trinity College

We had a quick tour of Trinity College, got to see The Book of Kells, and the Long Room in the Trinity College Library (which was FABULOUS to me, the library geek!).

Glendalough

This is a chapel at Glendalough, which is a monastic site from the 6th century, started by St. Kevin. The misty day was perfect to wander through the ruins.

New Ross

The Emigrant Flame at New Ross was lit from The Eternal Flame at John F. Kennedy’s grave in Arlington National Cemetery.  The Kennedy family was from New Ross.

Waterford

We enjoyed a guided walking tour in Waterford, and learned about the Viking influence in Ireland.

Cobh

Cobh was the last port of call of the Titanic. The ship was too large for the harbor, 123 passengers were rowed out to the ship.

St. Mary’s Cathedral

We saw this cathedral from the bus on Thursday morning, and walked through Killarney to find it Thursday evening.

Titanic Belfast, through the Harland & Wolff slip where Titanic was built

The oddly shaped building is Titanic Belfast, a museum experience about the building of the Titanic and the tragic journey. It sits next to the very spot of the Harland & Wolff shipyard where the Titanic was built. The poles were used as support during the building process.

I will move some of my phone photos over from my laptop (I alternated between phone and camera) and post those soon.
