We left the western lake region and drove across the Isle. Looking online before we left I had found the Gleeson Townhouse in Roscommon which is about halfway to Dublin and a likely place for lunch.
My new “cousin” Eamonn welcomed us and taught me a little gaelic Irish. He and Mary are former teachers who now run a very successful restaurant, cafe and guesthouse.
Nearby we happened on a horse racing “Point to Point” event. The Irish horses were glorious on a sunny day.
Our last night – of course we went out to the pubs where, not surprisingly, Ray played and sang a couple songs.
Landing in JFK we picked up the van and loved driving right thru NYC – no traffic – everyone out on a sunny afternoon. We stopped at Glen’s for a little supper and appreciated the beautiful fall colors still vibrant thru New Jersey and New York. Nice to be home :- )
