Old Cottages Wexford

On the road to Wellingtonbridge I saw this restored old cottage, whomever did this deserves kudos for preserving the character of the house,
A little along the road this charming corrugated house with landscaped garden is for sale, who wouldn't want it, a little paint and its as good as new. forgot to get the name of the auctioneer to get the guide price will have tomorrow.

Mountain Forth windmill and fog Co Wexford

This is an old windmill in Wexford, probably similar to the one on top of Vinegar Hillbut this one has two doors
A ruin of a house beside it
Apparently there is a great view, but this is all I saw.

The Devils Bit (Barnane Eile) and tower near Drom

According to the people of Tipperary the gap that can be seen on the top of this mountain is the result of the Devil taking a bite out of the mountain. He supposedly broke some teeth which then formed the Rock of Cashel. Barnane Eile is the Gap of Ely, there was a powerfull Clan of O'Carroll, Princes of Ely a large territory that spanned 2 counties
 Closer up
 And just down the road towards Templemore this tower.

Bridges and Waterfalls, Kells Co Kerry.

Just before Kells Co Kerry, there is the remains of the old railway line that runs alongside the road halfway up the hills, at one bad bend on the road this railway looms over a bridge that has a huge drop and the sounds of a waterfall. The first two are this railway bridge, it is hard to get a complete shot without a hike up the hill and I had only time to go in one direction and I chose waterfall.
From under the road bridge.
After a hike down a steep slope this is just a run off from the waterfall
The larger fall with view of the two bridges in the background, about 100 foot from the road bridge.

Killarney Park drive, trees.

Driving through Killarney Park, if you can tear your eyes away from the lakes the trees are amazing and are like something drawn in a Tim Burton Film, especially without leaves.
