|Dingle, the peninsula, is a small part of this world but rich in antiquities. In our brief stay, we discovered a row of standing stones, several Ogham Stones in a stone ring fort, a multitude of ‘beehive’ huts, the Oratory of Gallarus and much more, without even trying.
This painting is from down the coast on the "Ring of Kerry" looking back on the Dingle penisula. You can see Inch the sand bar.
Music: The Donegal Jig
DingleA late night meal in the village of fresh grilled fish
Steamed clams and mussels in a large rounded dish
Little fishing boats were secured at the piers
We were snug in a pub with a few dark beers
Rustic and primitive, a jutting finger of land
Dingle, more interesting than even we planned
Numerous relics of the past, created from stone
Before the tourists, they sat ignored and alone
As the cool fog swept in from the sea
We slept that night in a Slea Head B&B
