I had the good fortune of being able to spend Christmas in Italy with my sister, Amy, who met me there after her fabulous semester in Dublin, Ireland. It was hard being away from home during the holidays, but I’m certain I couldn’t have chosen a better alternative! Below are some photos from our time …
Photos from the Ring of Kerry, a tourist circle famous for its panoramas of the Irish countryside. We also stopped at a sheep farm, and were given a demonstration of how sheep dogs herd the flocks. They were pretty spectacular! And so fast!
Killarney, home to St. Mary’s Cathedral, and County Mayo, home to Village Cong, where much of The Quiet Man was filmed.
Some photos from a day out and about in Dublin, including the Ha’Penny bridge along the River Liffey, the Spire of Dublin, and the beautiful St. Patrick’s Cathedral!
