10 Questions About…

Howth in Feb by Ann Treacy

On Lisa’s last full day in Ireland we went to Howth. Howth is the opposite side of Dublin Bay from where we live. You can take the DART from Bray to Howth, which is pretty much like taking it from start to finish. The journey can get a little long, but it’s pretty and it is a good way to get there.

Luckily the girls like to play on the poles in the DART so that passes the time.

We went down the pier and saw about 8 seals, which is always a thrill. The pier didn’t seem as high as when we went there with Aine 2 years ago. In fact I’m sure it wasn’t as high, since the water is definitely higher (bringing the pier closer to the top of the water). Sadly the boats don’t run to the Eye of Ireland (little island off Howth) yet. But we’re coming back in April, when they do run.

We climbed up to the abbey ruins. We had a nice lunch as a place called Deep. The girls and I shared an appetizer platter that included mussels and calamari; maybe a sign that we eat out too often. It was a good but tiring day. We got loads of good pictures because Howth really is very picturesque.

Mrs B,

I touched a mummy finger. I don’t want to scare anybody. We miss you!

The people here are very nice. The teachers here are nice too. The school here is called Johnstown.

I miss you so much. Thank you for posting a comment on the blog. We’ll try to send you another postcard for your Irish unit.

Love, Aine
