While visiting the Kilkenny Saturday Market on The Parade outside Kilkenny Castle I met a charming artist and sat down to have a wee chat.

Deirdre McCarthy is inspired by the coutryside that surrounds her house on the hill in Inistioge, just south of Kilkenny City.

Today was absolute perfection.

St. Canice's Cathedral

My group had time to explore Kilkenny this morning. I walked along the Medieval Mile to St. Canice's Cathedral before returning to the Saturday Market and meeting Deirdre.

Around noon we leaded into our mini coach for a trip to Tipperary.

Cahir Castle

First stop, Cahir Castle for explorations and a picnic lunch on the island.

Then on to the Rock of Cashel, which never fails to impress.

Tomorrow we leave the lovely Butler House for a trip to Doolin – with a couple stops along the way.
