|Dunluce Castle home of the O'Donnells in early 1300's. On the edge of the North Coast of Ireland, and slipping!|
Two Windblown Visitors.
There was a woman and her child visiting Dunluce while we were there. They were from Connecticut. She was surprised to find I was from Rhode Island - next door in the US.
|Spend the day along the north coast of Ireland. Had lunch in Portrush and then drove along the Antrim Coast southward. Gorgeous scenery!
Took the train from Portadown to Belfast one day. Visited the Ulster Historical Foundation and purchased some books. Walked around Queens U., and met some online friends for lunch. They arranged to take me to the Linen Hall; the holdings include a wealth of historical material. A week there would not be enough! You can check through their holdings by Telnet online, as one can with many libraries worldwide!
Another day I took the train to Balmoral to the PRONI buildings. A week here would not be enough! Again read for hours and purchased books. My suitcase was very heavy at this point!
Had a great evening out with the Lyttle's at a Evening of Percy French Music. I do enjoy the songs, especially _Are you Right There, Michael . . ., which refers to The West Clare Railway in County Clare and it's never to be met schedules. There are plans to restore this "infamous" railway from Kilrush to Kilkee. Mr. French immortalized Ballyjamesduff in Cavan in song, and The Immigrants Letter touches the heartstrings.
