Shoulder Month


May is called a "shoulder month" in Ireland when you are in between the wet and dry seasons as well as between colder and warmer temperatures. That certainly was my experience. While I carried an umbrella with me most days, I only had to use it occasionally and only for short periods of time as here where I made my way past a garden at the Connemara Marble workshop to a kind of Joyce family museum across the street.
