... a journey without a definite route, taken merely for pleasure

The Monastic Site of Clonmacnois
MacCarthy's Tower and Temple Connor
We decided to extend Doug's work trip a few days and go back to Ireland. After a quick flight to Dublin and a stop at the car rental counter to pick up our car, we were off to Westport in County Mayo. Our first stop was at the ruins of the monastery of Clonmacnois on the River Shannon, near Athlone.
