NOT DONEGAL THIS TIME !!
I'm in Glendalough , Co. Wicklow , Ireland , home to the remnants of an ancient monastic settlement, and judging by the number of visitors from all over the world, it's well known globally! It's also one of the most beautiful places I've had the privilege of seeing. The best known of the historical figures associated with this place is St. Kevin.
The first two photos were taken on the hike up the valley and along the high ridge track around the lake. The pools in between the many waterfalls were deep and dark and inviting on a warm sunny day. The water was freezing but invigorating!
I've meant to visit this place for years and the invitation to give a small home concert just a few miles away gave me the incentive to make the effort and get here. Martin ( from Iona) joined me for the evening and we played a mixture of Iona songs and solo pieces for a very appreciative and lovely group of people.

Hi everyone. We have been getting some enquiries for bigger size 25th anniversary t shirts. We can probably get some done but would need to know that there are enough orders to warrant ordering them in. So if you would like a 2XL or 3XL mens/womens 25th anniversary Iona t shirt please let us know by emailing Debbie: opensky1@btopenworld.com They would be a little more expensive, an extra £3 on top of prices currently shown online. Look forward to hearing from you.

WINDY DONEGAL!
This tree has survived over 100 years of westerly winds and winter storms blowing in from the Atlantic. It's roots go deep and it's slow growth results in a tough strong wood which doesn't break easily. It's resilient Check out Ephesians 3:14-19!
