  2. Have just been back to see all your Galway posts RR.. such a pretty city and a popular tourist drawcard. I'm 100% with you on the whiskey thing, the fumes make it impossible for me to even get near close enough to drink it.. and I'm a Scot ☺☺

  3. The first one needs a knight added, I think.

  4. Love the ancient carving and the painting of the saint.
    I think Mr Trump is copying the finger placement of that saint when he emphasises point in his speeches. Perhaps he thinks he's a saint too?

  5. Shamrocks must go back a long way in Irish tradition!

  7. One wonders how long ago that carving lost its face.
