An Irish Blessing: a photo essay

By Margaret S. Hamilton
May the road rise to meet you,
Jaunting Cart, Killarney National Park
St. Stephen's Green Dublin
may the wind be ever at your back.
Dun Aenghus Fortress, Inismor, Aran Islands
Cliffs of Moher
Giant's Causeway
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
Kylemore Abbey, Connemara
Blarney Castle
Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
Muckross Lake, Killarney
And until we meet again,
Rock of Cashel
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Kylemore Abbey garden
Muckross House garden
Belfast Botanical Garden

Thanks for stirring up vivid memories! It's been a few years since I've been in Ireland.

Ireland was the first overseas trip I ever took. My sister & I, as young teens, went to visit family friends. We flew over in a prop plane, very modern at the time, and stayed in Galway. Since then, I've been back a few times, and loved every trip.

Just lovely, Margaret! thank you for sharing.

the Irish blessing is perfectly matched to the photos

I can almost feel the mist.

It was a grand journey indeed
always - stella

Jim Jackson said...

Very Lovely, Margaret. I have not been to Ireland and hope to rectify that some day.

Kait said...

What lovely photos and an excellent way to start the day. Thank you, Margaret.

Margaret Turkevich said...

Kathleen, Ireland's biggest industry is tourism and the whole country is geared for visitors. You would be amazed and pleased with all the changes. Galway was jumping the afternoon we visited.

Stella, a memorable journey!

Jim, it's a great trip with enough cliffs, rocks, and prehistoric forts to keep you fit. Seabird nesting season is in the spring. We saw very few birds in October.

Kait, Ireland was serene, welcoming, and friendly with wonderful farm to table cuisine.

Kaye George said...

What a charming presentation with the Irish Blessing! Great photos, too. Thanks for the virtual trip.

Grace Topping said...

It looks like you had a lovely holiday. I'm so happy for you. I've never been to Ireland, and it looks like a lovely place to visit.
