-But as always it was all so worth it.  A few days and I’ll be put to sorts again and time to catch up with all!! Here are a few pics of County Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry and I will post others from time to time. I can’t decide whether to buy a house in Kerry or Perthshire and Kinross!!  both are so gorgeous.  ( Dream on!)

The Skelligs are off the coast of the Ring of Kerry. Sceilig Mhichil or Michael was the site of a 6th century monastic community started by St. Finian. The island is a formidable jutting rock and there is a steep climb to get to the beehive cells of the monks situated at the peak. (Two tourists fell to their deaths here). Weather permitting as the seas are very rough, a ferry will take people there and even if you don’t make the climb, you will see plenty of  wild life including colonies of puffins who make their home on the cliffs of these islands.  We didn’t have time as you must book well in advance.
