Matt is Back from Ireland

(Posted 8/6/2006) - Grandson Matt took two weeks and visited Ireland in July. He and his girlfriend Holly ended up circumnavigating the island, driving about 1000 miles, mostly following the coast-line.

My son Jon says that between them they took 1600 photos (lots of overlap there). Jon sifted through their pictures after they returned and picked out the "best" and put them in an online slide show. They are posted here: linked to Matt and Holly in Ireland 06 .

The slides aren't labelled -- but the photos are beautiful. If you've ever thought of travelling to Eire, take a look at these coastal and scenic images.

Matt and Holly say they really liked the northern counties, and since the hostilities ceased, there has been a lot of tourism in Northern Ireland too.
