“Top of the Morning to You” – First Great Day in Ireland
by Steve Ray on September 30, 2014
We picked everyone up at the Dublin airport and headed out across Ireland with our ultimate destination being Galway.
Because of the fire in the O’Hare airport in Chicago several people got delayed but eventually we collected of our pilgrims. One will be showing up tomorrow morning and catching up with us.
The highlight of today was stopping at Clonmacnoise on the Shannon River and seeing the monastery built by St. Kirian in the fifth century. I think you’ll be impressed with the magnificence and the grandeur of the ruins. St. John Paul II came here in 1979 to pray and we celebrated Mass on that spot.
We are now in the Imperial Hotel in Galloway and all is well. We have another adventurous day tomorrow.
Enjoy the movie. Click here to see it:
