Ireland oh, Ireland.   Beautiful Emerald Isle!  

We were fortunate to spend 11 days in May touring the country and enjoying the people.  Every time we passed through a town with a tune I yearned to pull out the dulcimer (one of Ron Ewing’s dulcimettes which packed nicely in my luggage) and play the song.  We spent 2 days exploring

Dublin               


went through Lisdoonvarna     and Kesh.


Walked the streets of Port Lairge(Waterford)







 and Connemara 


stayed at Galway


(and watched the sun go down over the Bay).


 I was finally able to do some playing at the gardens at
Kylemoore Abbey  


and at Ulster American Folk park.


When we got to Belfast we met up with the only dulcimer player I could find in Ireland.   William Duddy.  
He and his wife Una graciously invited us to their  house for dinner on the barbie 
(goat burgers, sea bass, bangers and more) and a jam session.   William is a member of  “Friends of American Old Time Music and Dance” so we knew a lot of music in common and had a wonderful time.
