Three pink ladies

Hi there, I’m back from Killarney and back at the easel. Gráinne and I had a blast, and we found Killarney waiting in the sunshine for us despite Odette’s best efforts. Odette is our sat nav, she is at the remedial end of the spectrum and disgraced herself by sending us down the N8 towards Cork instead of the N7 towards Limerick. The fact that we didn’t notice until Abbyleix will tell you how much craic there was in the car. (For my American friends that’s Irish for fun and not an illegal substance). We did make it in just over 3.5hrs so no harm done.

We stayed with a good friend and native Killarney woman Martina who out did herself in the hospitality stakes at every turn.
The purpose of our trip was to visit a gallery in Killarney called the Killarney Art Gallery, do check it out, but more about that later. In the meantime today’s offering is larger than usual at 12x12inches.


  • Lovely apples and welcome back.

    Kerry was the first place we went to in Ireland. We had to travel part of the ring to get to and from our cottage. When you're from a different country where cars drive on the other side of the road, the ring was a driving nightmare! Beautiful, but scary. It would have been best if we didn't have to do it twice a day…

  • Yes Susan, I know that road. It's used by coaches bringing tourists around the ring for a drive, which is good right, except when you meet one coming the other way! I here you have a sister of my Purdy too? So much in common!
