most of the time that _wirehead_ was here was spent tooling around the Irish countryside following little brown historical marker signs to neat little sites of interest. as it was only March, most of these neat little sites were, in fact, closed. however, "closed" is a fairly loose term when the bulk of the things you want to look at (standing stones, cairns, decrepit castles and monasteries, etc) are located outdoors in huge fields or inside farmer's sheep pastures. so _wirehead_ and i hopped fences, went around barriers, climbed walls, and braved belligerent sheep in order to see some truly spectacular things.
photographic evidence of these adventures now lives here (warning: scads of thumbnails)
you'll note, some of the photos look like they were taken on "uber grainy" mode. this is because they were taken with my digital in very low light and i used Picasa to lighten them up a lot so you could see what the heck the subject of the photograph was meant to be. most of them are usefully labeled, but feel free to ask questions if you're curious about anything. enjoy.
