Much of Athenrys Medieval wall is still there

The mindblowing Clonfert Cathedral

On Saturday last, I took the long route and stopped in a few places between where I live in Waterford to Caher castle in Galway. Stopping in Aghaboe in Laois, then Lorrha, North Tipperary, Portumna, Galway before staying the night in Caher castle for my birthday.  The next day we went to see the amazing Clonfert cathedral arch and see Athenry
