Totally top, can provide the *.gdb file if needed. After the Beara Peninsula we drove towards Kinsale, now slightly more inland. What an magnificent country Ireland is, truly beautiful. And what is it wonderful that the Irish on Sunday are all in the (Catholic) church ... the road is divine empty and fully to our disposal ;) .

Despite the heavy Catholicism in Ireland on Sunday all supermarkets are open. Where in the Netherlands politicians are debating endless on Sunday openings for shops, you can just pick up a fresh roll or do shopping across Europe. Would almost emigrate to a country where secular actually is explained ... as secular if it wasn’t for the fact that living in The Netherlands is so amusing and pleasant... : P

Pics will follow ASAP. Tomorrow a rapid but winding 160/175 km (110 miles) ride to our next stopover. Then, on Tuesday, yet another highlight in Ireland will follow: The Wicklow Mountains and the Old Military Road just below Dublin. Ireland is GREAT. And the rain? It belongs to it. Proper tyres and proper clothing and it won’t bother you for a sec!
Good for you, glad you are enjoying your trip here and no bothered by a bit of rain. It does stop sometimes....................I promise
Looking forward to more pics.
