Ok so here’s part one of “Past the Tower”. Once we walked up that mountain, we walked past it another 10 minutes or so to the wild edge of the world. I think most people turn back once they’ve reached the tower (like we did the first time I went up). I think I took a million pix & vids, and thanks to 2G, we’ll have them up in no time 😁
Bionn deiseanna go leor anseo a bheith ag seinm ceol - ar an teach tabhairne (gach oiche!), le cairde sa loistín, agus i mo aonar le radharc an tsliabh is tonnta | There are many opportunities to play music here - at the pub (every night!), in friends’ lodging, and alone with a view of the mountain and waves. Ceoltóirí|Musicians: Stephen, Sean, Mick, Pól, Kate, Dáiví, Seán, Finn, mise #tradceol#ceol
Turas Cholmcille agus an Túr le cairde | Colmcille pilgrimage and the tower. It’s a straight uphill walk to the tower for about an hour from the village here. I really love the old old things (Colmcille’s crosses, well, etc. ~1500 yrs old), and the scenery is the next big star. More pix of that to follow.
Chuaigh mé ar siúlóid eile le cairde inniú. Seo ach an tús; an chuid is fearr fós le teacht | I went on another walk with friends today. This is just the start; the best is yet to come. (Notice the St. Brigid’s cross in the rock wall) #gleanncholmcille
Súil eile ag am lón | Another view at lunchtime. There’s a steep little road that goes up from my accoms into the hills, and when you walk there you feel like you’re on top of the world. Pictures don’t do it justice, but here’s few anyway
Day 5: Story Time!! So walked into a random bar, looking for certain family, turns out a bartender was my long lost second cousin(yellow shirt)!! Then we went off to see where my great grandma migrated from to Philly!!
My great grandma’s childhood home. When I say this was in the middle of nowhere, I mean literally there’s no signal and nothing but lambs for miles. Seeing this (beautiful!!) place, and how far my great grandmother came to start a new life in Philly halfway across the globe was absolutely incredible. Humble roots, big dreams, and one hell of a strong family. 💚
