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