Marvelous crosses everywhere.  This is a special cross found in Monasterboice.

Day 2:
Our guide Derek picked us up at 8am and we started with Monasterboice graveyard.  From the 5th century!  Some of the best crosses in Ireland.  Marvelous!  This was a highlight.

Marvelous is my word for the day!!
Next was Newgrange.  Marvelous!  Older than the pyramids! A bit intimidating getting inside but worth the effort. I cannot even describe this place or how I felt inside the stones.  Off to The Hill of Tara.  We next stopped at a local craft house with Alice spinning wool from black and white sheep called "Jacob Sheep" which go back to the bible.  I had to have a hat.

And we finish our tour day at an abandoned historic Irish Monastery (Mainistir Bheigti) where part of BRAVEHEART was filmed.  Founded in 1147!  MARVELOUS!!

Busy but marvelous day with only a little drizzle at the Hill of Tara.  Blessed with good weather.  We capped it off with of all things... A tasty Italian dinner at DiVino in Skerries.

The girls: Linda, Kathy, Joan and Beth, considering their wine order!
