I took a trip to Ireland for a couple of weeks at the end of September / first of October in 2004 and had a wonderful time. I flew into Dublin and stayed in a hostel there for a couple of days, then picked up a rental car and drove North. I didn't visit Northern Ireland because I didn't think I had enough time to see it and the rest of the island in the time I had allotted. The descriptions on this page just list the places I took pictures on that particular day. If you click on the day, it will give you a more thouough description of what I did that day and will have links to the pictures in the text. Eventually I will be linking the text on this page to the picture indices, but all of this wonderful technology takes time to implement!
HERE is a blog I kept while I went along so people would know I was still alive and kicking.
All formatting is complete!! I only need to rotate a few pictures and thumbnails to get everything perfect (Nov 7). If you find anything that you think needs to be corrected, please email me with the specifics!!! It's hard to find every error :-)
