|Me and my Granny Eileen on her 94th birthday!|
Kilmore is famous around Ireland for being one of the only places to still have thatched cottages. Thatched cottages don't have normal roofs they have layers and layers of straw instead! They look really cool too.
Kilmore has looooads of beaches which are always fun!!
|There was a crazy mist rolling in off the sea!|
|This beach is called 'the burrow'.|
There's a part of land that juts out into the sea and it's called Forlorn Point, when the sea goes out you can pick Mussels off the rocks (not that I would eat them, bleugh)! Overlooking it is a commemorative garden for all the people who have been lost at sea.
|This statue represents all the people who have stood at this spot and waited for someone to return home to them from the sea.|
|This is a giant rib bone from a whale that washed ashore in 2000!|
Another place that I think is really cool (but a bit scary) is a graveyard beside my granny's house. It's one of the oldest graveyards in Ireland! My great granny and great grandad are buried there. The ruins of an old church are in the middle of the graveyard, the church is so old that noone really knows when it was built but people think it was in the 12th century!
|These steps that jut out of the wall are how you enter!!|
|The water from this holy water font is said to get rid of warts! My granny swears it actually works!|
|Granny says the church was a ruin even when she was a little girl!|
So there you have it the Daniel Furlong tour of Kilmore! (Maybe I should be a tourguide if the singing doesn't work out hehe!) I hope you have enjoyed getting to see my favourite parts of Kilmore and maybe if you haven't ever been here you might take a peek if you're in the area! Hopefully you can see why I like it so much :)
Bye for now!
