Mossy Trees, Killarney National Park - County Kerry, Ireland
The trail to Torc Waterfall in Killarney National Park winds through a forest of moss-covered trees, with a stream to one side. After a light rainfall, which increased the flow of the waterfall and the rush of the stream, the sun started to peek through the trees.

Out of Service, Nimmo’s Pier – Galway, Ireland
Cross the river to Galway’s West End and what was formerly the old fishing village of Claddagh outside the city walls, and stroll down Claddagh Quay to enjoy a perfect view back to the houses along the Long Walk. You soon come to Nimmo’s Pier, which has been the sea entrance to Galway since 1830. Today you will find local fisherman harvesting oysters, swans gliding through the harbor, and these weather-worn fishing boats pulled out of service for some much-needed care.
Cathedral, Cross of the Scriptures and Cemetery, Clonmacnoise Monastery - County Offaly, Ireland
Founded in the 6th century on the banks of the River Shannon, the strategic location of Clonmacnoise Monastery on the major east-west land route through the bogs of central Ireland helped it become a major center of religion, learning, craftsmanship and trade. The cathedral was built in the early 10th century, and the west doorway has been recently restored. The 4-meter high Cross of the Scriptures, carved from sandstone, is one of the most skillfully executed of the surviving high crosses in Ireland. The cemetery includes numerous high crosses and the largest collection of Early Christian graveslabs in Western Europe.
