Location: Dublin, Ireland

MapHi ya Kids, I'm having the time of my life. Just seen half of Ireland and it has been awesome. I visited some of my friends over in Ireland. There names are Kevin, Niamh (Said Neve) and John.
We started in Dublin and we went on a viking tour of Dublin. It was so much fun.
Then we saw the Molly Mallone statue. There's a song about her. I'm sure I sang it when it was St Patrick's Day!
...As she wheeled her wheelbarrel,
throught the streets broad and narrow,
crying cockles and mussels,
alive alive-o
Then we went to Trinity College and saw the Book of Kells . It's a very old set books that were written about 1000 years ago. They are very beautiful.
After that, we headed down to County Cork and saw the Blarney Castle. At the castle you can kiss the Blarney Stone which should give you the gift of the gabb. (ie: talk a lot) I know you are all saying I already talk too much but it was loads of fun.
Later that day, we travelled to Dingle. Dingle has a dolphin that lives there. We didn't get to see it but it was an awesome seaside village.
On Monday, we saw the Cliffs of Moher (said like the word more). There wasn't any wind that day and it was very sunny -this is very unusual for Ireland because it usually rains.
Finally, we went to Kevin's home in Westport which is just near Galway.
Be good and I miss you all too!
