Thursday Morning   Leave a comment

This morning we visited Kilkenny Castle, home to the Butler family from the late 1300’s to 1935. They were Earls and Dukes of Ormonde and a politically astute family who lived in the castle for some 500 years. The restoration society has done a great job bringing this castle back to its original condition. By the way, the outer stone walls in this place are 10 feet deep. That should keep the neighbors at bay.

Also today when we woke up it was raining. First time since we got here. But once we got ready to leave the hotel, there was hardly a fine mist falling. We have been SO lucky.
