Into The West - The Homecoming Part Two


Anyone who lives in Ireland will tell you we have a little weather issue - it rains a lot.  However, the same people will tell you, when it doesn't rain - there is no other country in the world they would rather be.  Ireland is quite possibly the most beautiful country on the planet but when the sun shines it is simply spectacular and the west of Ireland in particular is sensational.  For it not to rain for five weeks in  a row is nothing short of miraculous and I will be forever grateful to have been in the country when she shimmered at her amazing best.  I'm going to let the photos say the rest.
