Craicin’ Good Fun  by Kimberly O’Neill

Stepping into a pub on our nightly adventures,

wall to wall conversations and World Cup on the screen.

A young gent tells his tales of music, song and dance,

craic’ everywhere to be seen.

Guinness and hard cider flow in harmony with the music,

feet tapping, loud laughing from locals and their stories.

A brilliant reel on the fiddle plays in this busy corner pub…

You can feel it in the walls, the history of a town and its’ glories.

A craic: the combination of gossip, information, artistic performance and,

of course, booze that go to make a good night out.


Tread Softly


Theme: Doors

These beautiful doors open to a church on the grounds of Drumcliff

where William Butler Yeats gravesite lies in Sligo, Ireland.


He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

– William Butler Yeats

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Crystal Artistry


The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Intricate.”

Last summer while touring through Ireland, we stopped at the Waterford Crystal showroom.  A great place to pick up a special gift, but also an incredible display of their own artistry in crystal. This was a section of a bodhrán drum with celtic designs.

Below are some other examples of their intricate workmanship.
