Sunday May 20 - Today took a good exploratory walk around Ballinasloe and then walked to the Tesco and bought a scanner. Since I had a scanner and some other stuff, I had to have Noel pick me up at the Tesco and give me a ride home instead of walking. I invested most of the rest of the day in setting up the scanner and scanning family pictures Christy gave me to scan. I had been planning on catching the #20 bus on Dunlo street to Athlone and have a look around tomorrow (Monday), and get lined up on a tour from there to Clonmacnoise for Tuesday. However my cousin Noel came by and said we could all go to Clonmacnoise with him in his car tomorrow. So that sounds like a good deal.
I plan on later this week taking the #20 bus to Galway and back to check out the sights there. I'll let the bus driver worry about traffic and parking. I did some homework as well and found that there is a #50 bus which goes to the Cliffs of Moher going south and you can catch the #50 bus coming back north to get
AN Tain pub

back to Galway. I'll have to investigate this option some more.
