Here are some photos of our family trip to Ireland and Scotland in May 2007. 5 nights and 828 miles in Ireland. From Dublin north and around the County Antrim coast past the Giant's Causeway and then down the west coast. Through Letterkenny, then Galway, to the Cliffs of Moher and then due east accross central Ireland to the Dublin Airport to head off to Scotland.

Newgrange circular passage gravesite is 5,000 years old!
Beaghmore stone circles
Cranfield Parish Church where my great grandmother attended.
The church was on the shore of Loch Neagh - the largest lake in the British Isles
Ruin of the Cranfield Parish Church in Staffordstown, County Antrim. My great grandmother graduated from Sunday school here on October 8th, 1880 when she was 18 years old. She left for America a few months later.
We saw very few stop signs or traffic lights in Ireland. They just paint a white circle in the middle of the intersection and everyone drives clockwise around it!
Randalstown, County Antrim
Glenariff glen. Our B&B that night was in the bottom of the glen at a working sheep farm.
The orange on the hillside is gorse. It is everywhere.
