Sunrise: approaching the Dublin airport
Mary Anne and Ellen have their first cup of coffee in "Wilma and Dan's" coffee shop.
Our first "breathing point" after negotiating the M 50 and getting out of Dublin.
We're on the right road!
So far, so good. We got through the roundabouts with only a couple of detours.
The road is lined with heather which is in full bloom at this time of year.

Beautiful gree fields at the foot of the mountains
Driving does present its challenges.
Even the sheep enjoy the heather.
The name "Glendalough" derives from the two lakes iin the valley formed by the glacier.
The road  is one lane at this point!
We were welcomed by Breda and Michael to Cairdeas cottage at the Tearmann Spirituality Centre where we will stay for the next week.
View from the balcony of Fr. Michael's cottage
Village of Laragh: across the street from the Tearmann Centre.
We were welcomed at a supper prepared by Breda, and were able to dine outside in the evening sunshine.
After our supper,  we participated in the Eucharist with Michael, Breda, and several other guests. A perfect ending to our first day.
