La' Fheile Padraig Dhuit!!
Happy St. Patrick Day!!
The scenic pictures were taken on my trips to Ireland. Portbradden, the hamlet in picture one, has the smallest church in Ireland. I can not remember its exact size but something in 12' x 15' foot size.
Donegal is a part of Ireland that is least visited by American tourists but is probably the most ruggedly scenic part of the country. While most tourists flock to the west and southwest of Ireland, Donegal remains undiscovered and hopefully will continue to be.
Glendalough has been a religious site since about the year 800 A.D. and has a magical quality about it. If you are fortunate enough to be able to visit the site, be sure and walk to the upper lakes.
