Come on in...


To the old Glandore Cemetery


This is the little gate that leads you into the cemetery which MONT and I wandered through early one morning. The stone work was amazing!


...and this is where the original Church once stood, but when it started crumbling and was no longer able to be used for worship, the locals decided it was a pretty good place for their loved ones to rest in peace.

This is the view from the back yard of the Bay View B&B where he stayed. The water was so blue and the sky so clear we felt like we were in a postcard. In fact many people couldn't believe just how warm (hot) and clear it was. In Ireland, 19-22 degrees celsius is considered hot.


Also early one morning, MONT and I took a little drive across the bridge to Union Hall.

I just couldn't get over the beauty and quirkiness of the place, although I'm sure the residents don't consider it quirky, it's just normal, run o' the mill stuff to them.

So there you have it. Glandore. A place well worth visiting if you're ever in Ireland. In fact all of the places we saw in West Cork were worth a visit.
