    Ennis Friary

    June 28, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 64 °F

    We started off our day by backtracking to Ennis, about 40 minutes from Doolin, to check out the photogenic ruins of the Ennis Friary.

    Founded by the Franciscans in the 13th century, the friary was built on an island where the River Fergus divided. Today, the island is incorporated into the streets of Ennis. Of the original structure, only the choir at the east end of the church survives.

    The €4pp admission, which was covered by the Heritage Card, gave us access not only to the ruins but to the exhibit hall set up in what was once the nave of the church.

    A-wander in Ennis

    June 28, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 64 °F

    As is the case in most big cities, finding parking in Ennis was a challenge. We eventually found a car park and paid for two hours. When we left the Ennis Friary, we still had about 45 minutes left, so off we went for a stroll around town.

    We checked out the free “Clare Museum,” where nothing much caught our interest. But our walk along the banks of the River Fergus took us to a corner where a sphere captured our attention. Known as the “Centurial Sphere” this piece of art marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter 1916 uprising. The text carved into the galvanized steel sphere is apparently from songs about County Clare and its cultural heritage.

    It begins good but ends as a fail

    June 22, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Das war ein Tag. 70km in nicht endenden Sonnenschein. Über 50km war die Piste annehmbar aber die letzten km waren nur noch laufen. Ich hasse es. Natürlich ein hübschen Sonnenbrand geholt. Morgen gehts nach Limerick.Read more
