Even though my fairytale romance to the man originally from Ireland turned into a nightmare I have fond memories of my visits to Ireland.
I have a few souvenirs that I managed to save. I did have some cuddly leprechauns, I think my grandchildren now own them.
I thoroughly enjoyed my holidays in Ireland. My in-laws did take me sightseeing, I saw some amazing places.
My paternal grandfather was from County Armagh Northern Ireland. We did drive through that area but didn’t stop because my in-laws were from the South and still lived in fear because of the past terrorism between the Protestant and Catholic Faiths.
I found my favorite dream home
I fell in love with the country side in Ireland. I love little cottages with thatched roofs. Sorry the photo below is posted in sideways….I am using my cell phone and can’t work out how to rotate.
I did a lot of scrapbooking of my holidays. When visiting the Hill of Tara I felt a sense of peace and truly loved everything about it.
Below is a page from my travel book….The Hill of Tara.
That was just a glimpse of my travels. I actually travelled around the world in 38 days Christmas 2003.
