Doublin Ireland

Doublin is a beautiful city. Lots to see!

St Patricks Cathedral -awesome.


Floor designs inside the cathedral.


I can see many quilts from the floor designs. There was a small boys choir practicing while we visited. They sounded heavenly.

Many old buildings that had me oohing as I love building architecture.

And we visited The Book of Kells which is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks ca. 800 or slightly earlier.

I'll try to get today's activities posted in the morning...no guarantees...I'm so tired. It's 9:30pm and still day time. It won't get dark until 10:30pm. Dark or not I'm putting myself to bed soon.
