Last Sunday we had lunch in a fancy restaurant in a mall. It was nice – then we had a fun side trip to Tully Church. Tully Church is near to the house. I had been there before. Patrick and I walked there last the time we were here – but we had to get past a horrible, mean barking dog to get there. But on Sunday we had a car.

Cross at Tully Church is from the 12th or 13th century. Then there’s a church that’s probably older; I think they say 9th century. They’re kind of fun to see and climb on. It’s fun to see the landscape in the area too. As Lily said it would be fun to see a picture taken every year from the location – you could have seen a lot of building over the last few decades.

For extra credit Patrick and I took a walk Monday morning in the opposite direction to a dolmen in Ballybrack. Dolmens are rock formations that are burial portals. It’s kind of amazing to see all of the ancient religious building in the area. There’s a web site called Megalithic Ireland that I sometimes visit when I feel like taking the girls on a boondoggle walk.
