We just arrived in Limerick about 25 minutes ago. We had some trouble with the wireless internet in Blarney and I wasn't able to post any pictures last night. Patrick was able to get them on so there are a few pictures posted from yesterday.

We started out the morning at Blarney Castle where Patrick kissed the Blarney Stone. I kissed it 30 years ago and didn't want a "double gift of gab." And I didn't want to climb to the top of the castle, lay on my back while some man held my legs, and lean over the ledge to kiss it. I decided I can use my advanced age as an excuse!

It's late and I need to get some sleep after all of the traveling. I will post St. Patrick's Day tomorrow. It was amazing in many ways!!!
