Kerry is renowned for its magnificent natural beauty, mountainous landscape and still blue lakes.
These photographs were taken in Aghadoe, which overlooks the town of Killarney.
1. The Long Room at the Library of Trinity College Dublin
Built in the early 1700s, tourists come from all over the world to see this magnificent library. Located in the heart of Dublin city, its awe-inspiring bookshelves are lined with some of Ireland’s oldest books. You can also peer at the Book of Kells, an illustrated manuscript written around the year 800.
It’s the end of January already! So here’s a round-up of five of my favourites this month.
Notebook: Paperblank Embellished Manuscript, Monet (Water Lillies)
I find having separate notebooks for work, my own writing, and blogging ideas helpful because it means I can refer back to each project easily and everything’s more clearly laid out. As a graduate of a creative writing degree, I love having a decorative Paperblank notebook to expand on ideas and jot down scenes.
I never imagined being besties with a nun.
In fact, this particular nun used to be rather intimidating to us as children. We’d don the white altar server robes and knot the gold belt before mass, and someone would peek out the door and spot her in the first few church pews, her sharp eyes scanning each of us to make sure we were properly presented.
Christmas presents for the homeless have filled dozens of Luas trams at Connolly station in Dublin this week.
This is my report for UTV Ireland:
The Irish State has refused to purchase a surrender letter written by Easter Rising leader Pádraig Pearse one hundred years ago, saying it would not be an appropriate use of public funds to buy it.
The historic letter was withdrawn from auction this week after it failed to reach the guide price of €1 million. The highest bid was €770,000.
It is now most likely going to leave Ireland as the private owner lives overseas.
