A LOT of photos today! It’s so hard to narrow down to only a handful of photos when everything is so unique and interesting! You all want to see loads of photos anyway right? ;>
So after seeing Tully Nally Castle on Day 2, we headed to another favorite of mine, the town of Fore, with Fore Abbey and other ruins, founded around 630. I love this location and there’s much to explore with these 4 buildings. And have I mentioned that I LOVE GREEN?!
St. Feichen’s Church and graveyard:
Lovely old cross:

The lovely Fore Abbey and loads of pine trees to remind me of my beloved Oregon!
Leta capturing the sights…isn’t it cool seeing the scene on her camera screen?!
I think I’ve mentioned that Ireland has cows…even ginger cows!
An elephant tree just for me!
The cows chased us down the hill. A bit scary and funny at the same time! The were literally inches from us as we climbed down hurriedly!
Cool find in the town of Fore:
St. Feichen’s Mill whose waters run to Lough Lene:
Now THAT’S a picnic table!
Now, on to Fore Abbey:
And have I mentioned my love for flowers?
Little birdies in a cubby in the wall:
I love how this shows walls that used to be there:
Time to exit:
It helps to have daylight until around 10:30pm every night!
Then we headed to Longford, founded by Farrells and met some of those Farrells at Eamon Farrell Pub. Sadly they weren’t serving food anymore, so we picked up some food at Supermacs and brought it back to the pub. We met up with some Farrells and all were happy to chat about being Ferrels/Farrells! They said our name was probably changed at Ellis Island , no surprise, but stay tuned for more on that…
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more!
