2 shots— church in Kinnegad & statue of BVM in church yard.
Two short(??) hours from Galway
Shot St. Sinian’s Church— Tyrellspass, Pat in far foreground
Cathedral [actually SS Peter & Paul, a parish church] from street & from bridge in Athlone
Boat & swans from bridge in Athlone— River Shannon
Wedding party on church steps, Ss
Shots of sheep in pastures, some rock walls showing— both sides of road to Galway
Finally arrived at Seacrest (not easily) and were greeted by Miss Connolly. Her mother in Dublin till later this evening.
Took shot of sign in front of B&B with customary rock walls in background.
Mrs. Olive Connolly is landlady at B&B. We hope to give her hotel vouchers for our rent.
5:40 p.m. & Helen is hungry. (Me too). Will go up to Galway, 3 short(??) miles from here. Turn left out of driveway and continue to roundabout, turn left at roundabout & continue on to “Y” in road. Take left-fork of “Y” for Galway.
Had excellent dinner at Eyre House Restaurant in Galway. Authentic Irish music at Pucan Pub was disappointing.
Returned to B&B around 11. Found way in dark after usual small difficulties.
