Thursday June 24th

Leaving Dublin (now with our Tour Guide and Driver, Dennis Carroll), we drove through Portlaoise,
and the quaint town of Abbeyleix,  and had a noon appointment to see the
Rock of Cashel (also known as St. Patrick's Rock)
The majority of the buildings on the
current site of the Rock of Cashel
date back to the 12th and 13th
centuries.  The tower was built using
the dry stone method
(without mortar to bind the stones).

Lunch at Lawrence's Pub
Driving through Tipperary and Limerick,
we head for Adare, "Ireland's Prettiest Village".

Tipperary is built on the River Shannon and was
made famous by the movie "Angela's Ashes".

Driving to Tralee via New Castle West
and Abbeyfeale then into County Kerry.
We end the day arriving in
Tralee, on the Dingle Peninsula,
where we'll spend 2 nights.
Dingle is the most western point
in Ireland. Tralee's port is the most
westerly commercial point
in all of Europe.
