Sligo Day 2 but wait, there’s more!

There really was a lot to this day so I have split it into two blog posts and this one contains the overflow.

The second lough that we drove alongside was Glencar. There is a noted waterfall some way in – not very high but quite scenic and I took one or two good shots of the surrounding landscape including one of Ben Bulben from a different angle.

    These are absolutely stunning photos, Bruce and Pip – I think Fáilte Ireland (Irish Tourist Board) would give you a job on the spot. I have to say that I always think that Sligo is a massively underestimated spot. It doesn’t get nearly the tourist numbers that places like Galway and Westport do. But perhaps that is part of its unspoilt beauty and charm. As for your blog overall, it takes a couple of New Zealanders to show us Irish how it’s done. I love the way you have journalled your time in Ireland. You have just the right touch. Respect to you both!
