Ballybunnion Castle, County Kerry, Ireland. Overlooking the mouth of the Shannon as it meets the Atlantic. In the far distance, the cost of County Clare running to Loop head.
Reflections of Ireland I suppose reflects some of the beautiful scenes around the countryside of our small island and this one I took during the summer has all the hallmarks to prove that.
Hope you enjoy this view.
One of the oldest passage tombs in existence, about 3000-5000 BC. Older than Stonehenge in England. There's a few tombs like this scattered in Ireland. I think Knowth nearby is bigger, but they don't allow the public in. There are many smaller mounds nearby, one clearly visible from Newgrange.
A pic of my good friend Ireland :-)

Ireland is the third-largest island in Europe and the twentieth-largest island in the world. It lies to the northwest of continental Europe and is surrounded by hundreds of islands and islets. To the east of Ireland is Great Britain, separated from it by the Irish Sea. The island is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers just under five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, which covers the remainder and is located in the northeast of the island. The population of Ireland is approximately 6.2 million people. Just under 4.5 million live in the Republic of Ireland and just under 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
Relatively low-lying mountains surrounding a central plain epitomise Ireland's geography with several navigable rivers extending inland. The island has lush vegetation, a product of its mild but changeable oceanic climate, which avoids extremes in temperature. Thick woodlands covered the island until the 17th century. Today, it is the most deforested area in Europe. There are twenty-six extant mammal species native to Ireland.
