Greener Pastures

Ireland Tour Day 1:

Today I woke up at 4a and waited until 9a to leave with Alana and Alex to catch the Shamrocker bus to Abbey-Leix. 
There we got some snacks and headed for the Rock of Cashel.
Next we went to Blarney Castle and kissed the Blarney Stone for the "gift of gab". 

According to Monsignor Fulton Sheen, "Baloney is flattery laid on with a trowel. Blarney is flattery laid on with the lips; that is why you have to kiss a stone to get it."

After Blarney Castle we visited the Mitchelson Caves where we saw stalactites, stalactites and other cave related wonders.
Finally we went to a hostel called Neptune in Killarney where we cooked up some pasta with a guy named YK from Singapore.
