Awww. Glendalough...looks just as I remember it. hehe...and how it has looked for the past some hundred years I am sure. Great pictures Jennifer. When we went last year we didn't do the audiovisual tour (would have liked to) but we just didn't want to pay for the whole group, and the 60-some year old man behind the info. counter seemed to understand this, because after we nixed watching the video I wanted a pamphlet for our tour and he told me what each one cost and spendthrift that I am, I told the girls we would just have to share...I handed him the amount for one pamphlet and he handed me back three pamphlets. So I told him, "oh, I am sorry I just paid for one" and with a twinkle in his eye he said, "yes, you did and there you go." Ah, the Irish were so kind and understanding.

Hi Jenny N, awwww, what a nice memory you have of Ireland! I wonder if that same man was there when I visited Glendalough. The first time I was in Ireland, I spent a whole month there and met so many kind and generous people.
Today I could finally add the picture of the food carts to my post. I tried at least 5 times yesterday and every time my computer would crash! Aaarrgh!

Hello Jennifer.. You and Jenny N.. certainly have fond memories of Ireland .. The cemetary doesn't look scary to me either ..looks lovely with all the flowers and greenery.

I don't think much to the "Vans" as we in the UK would call them.. you would of thought that they would have a little cafe or and icecream parlour .. !!

Hi there Jennifer,
You know me a little bit by now, and for me too, anything that is Irish is appealing :)

Glendalough is like a "blast from your past",since were already there.I am not spooked by cemeteries at all,esp the older ones!I do Genealogy so cemeteries are cool places for me!

In the hope to trod the ancestral homeland one day,too.

Hi Anne, I didn't like the food vans either. They were pretty garish. There was a nice hotel right there that must have had a café.

Hi Barbara, thanks for commenting! Thanks for putting me on your blogroll. I need to update my blogroll soon, and will put your blog on it. Hope you get to visit Ireland very soon!
