Lady's Island, to Kllkenny, Ireland
Tree Grove Caravan and Camping Park

During the night there was a torrential rain and wind storm, but we were safe and snug in our little cocoon. By morning there was sunshine so we took a walk to the beach and the Irish Sea.
Today we are headed to Kilkenny and we started on a find road N25, and thought we would save time by taking R704. It was another...ROAD FROM HELL, winding and twisting with buses and trucks that just shouldn't fit on this narrow path, yet somehow they do! We found our way to N9 not great and...then N10 into Kilkenny. It is going to be fun driving on these roads in Ireland. The campground is about one mile or so from the town center.
Kilkenny is a Medieval Town, it dates from at least the 5th century. We visited Kilkenny Castle which traces its roots to a wooden structure built by Strongbow in 1172. There were just a few tour buses however by the end of the day it was bus after bus.
On our last hike, Kel's camera was dropped and the result was not good. So we are on a quest to replace the camera. We found a nice Sony and, of course, the technology has improved a great deal. So off we go "home" with a new camera...in the pouring rain now ...this is Ireland.
