I think today was an endurance of coach riding and climbing steps. I climb the castle Blarney and even stooped down to kiss the stone. The castle grounds were brilliant. Flowers, shrubs and trees were a beautiful background to the castle. The trees even had knitted tops around them from a sewing guild. A lady playing a harp was plying her trade too, you couldn’t have asked for better weather or ambience. We are now in Killarney for two days. This is a tourist town of 10,000 that can swell to 30,000 with visitors.
