We travel up and down to Dublin a lot and for the longest time we kept passing the sign for the Rock of Dunamase and saying “we really have to check that out one day”! Fortunately, we eventually did get around to checking it out because this is a remarkable site and one of my favourite places to visit now.
Yesterday I drove to the Slieve Bloom Mountains in search of snow. There has been a lot of snow this winter. By Irish standards I mean! Yet somehow I’ve managed to miss it all. We had a decent snowfall in our home town back in December but I was away in Dublin for the week and couldn’t help but be a little envious of all the lovely photos appearing online. Of course by the time I got back there was no trace of it. Since then there has been the odd sprinkling but nothing was sticking. There were a few other instances of wrong time, wrong place and I figured since it’s February now, I’d probably missed the chance.
