Dingle Bay, Loch Caragh, Co. Kerry, Ireland – October 2011

Had the opportunity to finally edit these photos from our trip to Ireland 9 years ago. No drones then, all feet.

Liam Dempsey:

Walking through cities that trace their history back to the 1200s and to churches that reach back to 800 AD is deeply moving. The connection to the past is palpable and gripping.

I felt this very same feeling when in Ireland. You realize the pub you’re in is nearly a thousand years old and suddenly the weight of that fact hits you. I can’t imagine visiting areas further east and south that are much older.

Here in the United States we simply do not have that heritage. This country is so young. We think old is two hundred years.

Dempsey’s post reminds me of my observations series. Worth a read.
