The view from the first at @ardglassgolfclub is always stunning and just when I think it couldn't possibly be any better they go ahead and add a pirate ship* (*may not be a pirate ship). So there you have it. The view from the first tee at Ardglass now with added awesomeness thanks to the addition of a pirate ship 🏴☠️. 📷 from @ardglassgolfclub#Ardglass#FirstTeeViews#AwesomeArdglass

Day two on our ride across Ireland 🇮🇪!!! Can you believe we rode to the bottom of that mountain in the distance today? Our ladies are already seeming to understand that we are hunting for a field to stay each night as today Lilly was already scoping out fields she thought might be the one! 😁 We had a pit stop in the town Ballydehob and lots of people came to chat with us! So many friendly faces in a short amount of time in Ireland! This is definitely one of the friendliest countries we’ve been. Tomorrow we ride towards Mizen head so if anyone has a field for us or would like a lesson from me then please get in touch!

Tromra Castle, built in the 1400s, stands watch over Ireland's County Clare coast near Quilty and Seafield, where many Spanish sailors lost their lives n 1588 when stormy weather drove their ships on the rocks.
While the current configuration of the castle was built in the 1400s, records indicate some sort of structure was on this site as early as 1215.
Believed to have been built for the Teige O'Brien Clan, the castle's owners and residents changed multiple times in the face of turf wars and political meanderings.
It became the property of the Earl of Thomond and Turlagh O'Brien in 1641 but was attacked and plundered by Irish rebels and Edmond O'Flaherty of Connemara only a year later.
In 1660, the owner became one Samuel Burton, with ownership transferring to Alice Burton in 1712. At some point thereafter, the O'Briens were back in residence as late as 1901.
The drama and political intrigue surrounding all of these ownership changes are chronicled in detail in the book, "Antiquities Near Miltown Malbay" by Thomas Johnson Westropp.

Eagle's Rock is the highest free standing natural rock tower on the island of Ireland, it stands at 330m tall. This picture definitely does not do it justice and it is really worth seeing for yourself.
If I could wake up every morning and be back in @connollysofleap to relive the Low n Slow Fire Feast with @fingalferguson@sam_mcnicholl@littlefox_ennistymon@thisiswhatwedoo + others, I totally would.
The food was incredible:
- Corn two ways and hot smoked chicken with Alabama White Sauce
- Meat platter: Pork ribs, beef short ribs, hot links, pickles, garlicky flatbreads with pickled green elderberries, tomatillo salsa...
- Strawberry Pavlova table plated to the sounds of Bob Dylan’s Hurricane,
- Finally, chargrilled watermelon steaks with citrus mint spice and grated frozen feta (not pictured, but OMG!)
There was also cocktails, a poetry slam and live music.
We had to leave far too early (morning departure for Skellig Micheal) but we could have happily stayed all night long!
Connolly’s was the place to be for this years’ @atasteofwestcorkfoodfestival - epic events and all with that signature sprinkling of Connolly’s magic right across it.
