    Hmmm, I guess you were sitting in the nose bleed section. Did the Tigers win at least?

    Definately nose bleed seats! They lost that game, but I went with a large group and didn't really see a lot of the game

    Beautiful shots, Niamh. I must be sure to see your country before they kick me out of the UK and send me back to Canada. LOL!

    Some nice pics Niamh...:-)
    I sent my Soul through the Invisible,

    And by and by my Soul return'd to me,
    And answer'd "I Myself am Heav'n and Hell :"

    Wonderful pictures, Niamh! I am at the gate boarding my plane now (haha - just kidding - wish I was...)

    Those satalite tombs are amazing! Everything is so green - guess it is from all the rain....love these photos....pretty different than here and quite pretty and rural, too.

    the area surrounding Bru Na Boinne is some of the best farmland in Europe.

    Very nice.

    Niamh, those pictures are great, and the pictures in your blog entry, too! Thanks for posting them and the short descriptions in your blog. I wish someone would build me one of those tombs and bury me in it when I die!

    So would I! That would be some farewell eh?
    I only wrote up a little bit of what i know about these sites in my blog. If i'd written ALL of what i know it would have been very long indead. Maybe i should use my blog as an educational blog for people to learn about Irish Archaeology. What do you all think?

    I'm sure many people would find it very interesting. I, for one, have a lot to learn, since just about everything I know about Ireland comes from watching Lucky Charms commercials.

    Pink hearts! Yellow moons! Orange stars! Green clovers! Purple horseshoes! Frosted Lucky Charms -- they're magically delicious!

    Those pictures are beautiful Niamh! Like Bluevictim, I'm not that fluent in Irish history either but it's long been a place I've wanted to visit. I'm not much of a blog reader but I may just read yours if it's educational.

    bluevictim -- beautiful shots of California!
    CdnReader -- your takes of Kew Gardens are very inspiring!
    Idril -- that tree shot would make a great giant wall poster! But in any case, your finishing touches did lend a magical air to it -- gorgeous!
    Bulletproof -- Your pictures are so clear, that second flower was stunning! And need I say that I fell in love with little Garfield? Sweet!
    Mortis -- cool pictures, love those cows!
    Papayahed, your stadium shots are totally professional looking, WOW!
    And Niamh, I love looking at the Irish scenery -- post any time!
