Holidays -Sligo Ireland

Sligo/Leitrim is the area in which I grew up and as children we used to roam the mountain below which is  called Benbulben.

Picture taken from the Glencar side




Below Glencar Waterfall which served as an inspiration to the William Butler Yeats and features in his poem ‘The Stolen Child’


Two versions of Yeats poem of the Stolen Child


The picture below was sent to me by my youngest brother(R.I.P) not sure if he took the photo or not

Below Doon Lough

My mothers ashes are scattered on the lakeshore near the pavilion. Literally a place where peace comes dropping slowly




Finally a picture of my surviving brother…The race is on now to see who will last the longest
