    Blennerville Windmill day 40 Fri 1 Jun

    June 1, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Breakfast at Victoria’s House at Cappamore Kells County Kerry, and had a long chat with the owner. More like a home stay than a bed and breakfast. No midges and nice weather, so we walked down to Kells beach down a mossy and Ferny lane. Clouds were covering the hillsides above so later when we drove past the “Mountain Stage” all the bus tourists where peering through the cloud at the view. Drove to Tralee County Kerry in error as I took the wrong road through a town an left the “Wild Atlantic Way” scenic route. Rejoined the scenic route and drove south to reach the original Tralee Harbour and the Blennerville Windmill restored in 2004. The Windmill was the last commercial windmill in Ireland and was only closed down a few years ago due to dust disease risk. The silted up seaport of Tralee is of enormous importance as the majority of the population that survived the Potato Famine of the 1840’s embarked on what were known as coffin ships bound for the New World (America & Canada). A canal built upstream to Tralee transported grain tp the mill in the 1600s to be shipped to England and France to feed the British army at war with France at a time England controlled all of Ireland. Followed the “Wild Atlantic Way” scenic drive northward to Limerick and our accommodation at the Pier Hotel there. We needed to park in a public multi story parking station paid by the hotel. Limerick is a regional city the size of Parramatta.Read more
