Oscar Wilde in a Dublin Park

Statue of Oscar Wilde in Dublin's Archbishop Ryan Park

For some reason, this relatively small country has produced many literary giants, including 4 Noble price winners.
The one author that is most often associated with Ireland is James Joyce (”Dubliners”, “Ulysses”, “Finnegan’s Wake”) and “Bloomsday” (16 June) celebrating the adventures of Leopold Bloom (the main character in “Ulysses”) in Dublin is a sort of National Holiday.
To name just a few of the other Irish classics:
Jonathan Swift, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett,WB Yeats, Elizabeth Bowen, Bram Stoker (”Dracula”), Seamus Heaney, James Connolly, Oliver Goldsmith and modern author Brendan Behan.

Clonmacnoise

Clonmacnoise
Clonmacnoise was founded by St. Ciaran about 1500 years ago.
Although the monastery itself was destroyed by the English, it is still regarded as a place of high religious significance - and also is a major tourist attraction.
I especially like the beautiful setting.

Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher
The cliffs of Moher and the Burren (the barren landscape next to the cliffs) are two of Irelands major tourist attractions and rightly so.
Unfortunately, a new visitor centre is being built at the cliffs, so large parts are inaccessible now and when the Centre is opened, admission to this natural wonder will no longer be free…

Shannon River at Athlone

Athlone, Ireland
Within a couple of hours, I”ve seen this river in rain, beautiful sunshine and many different lights.
The weather changes rapidly here…

I took this photo only a few minutes ago with my small Lumix - digital photography sure has its advantages.
Still looking forward to the slides from my Minolta SLR though…

Castlerigg Stone Circle

Filed under: — site admin @ 5:48 pm

The Castlerigg Stone Circle, near Keswick, Lake District
There are many little known stone circles found on the British Isles.
This one is only a short walk from Keswick, a pleasant town in the heart of the English Lake District.
The Castlerigg circle may be much smaller in size than Stonehenge, but the setting with its 360 degree panorama is simply breathtaking and its much less touristy than other rings.

Laxey Wheel

Laxey Wheel, Isle of Man
Maybe the most photographed tourist attraction of the Isle of Man, this is one of the wheels in the old mining town of Laxey used for lifting huge quantities of water.

Please excuse the somewhat unusual perspective, but I do not have access toimage editing software while travelling.
