An Irish Horse Race

The Irish love their horses. Last summer we attended a horse show and race in and around the West Cork village of Courtmacsherry. The Strand Race occurs during the few hours while the tide is out of the Courtmacsherry Bay.

This is small town life at its very best.

Solitary Pub Moment

With St Patrick’s Day approaching, now seems a good time to reach back into my Irish archives from last summer.  Was this Irishman lost in thought or just waiting for his Guinness to settle? You decide.
