Today I once again joined the Wild West Irish Tours for the day, thanks to Michael for inviting me to tag along. Today we went on The Rose of Innisfree and took a cruise around lovely Lough Gill. We were joined on board by Mary Kennedy who was filming for RTE’s Nationwide.
We sailed alongside the Isle of Innisfree. It’s a very small island and I’m inclined to believe that W. B. Yeats was writing about another island possibly Beezie’s or maybe Church Island. I suppose we’ll never know for sure.
We also got to see Dooney Rock and Slish Wood. I was very grateful that the boat was calm and I didn’t have a repeat performance of the last time I joined the Wild West Irish Tours to Inismurray Island.
There was only one thing I didn’t like about the tour of Lough Gill and that’s St. Angela’s College. I think it really is a blot on an otherwise beautiful landscape and I don’t know how they got permission to build it there.
My thanks to Wild West Irish Tours for letting me join them. The rest of my photos are here.
