This is one of those "I suck as a celtophile" moments. I've never been to Emain Macha - one of two central locations in the Tain bo Cualnge cycle, the home of Cuchulain (oh yeah and Conchobar mac Nessa himself).. I. Suck. But I am well aware of how much I need to go at some point.

    Yes, that's true. I got really mad at my camera(a 35mm, old school). Now, every time I see a picture of Eilean Donan, or Loch Ness, I say to myself: "I was there, but have no pictures, argh." Still, I have a lovely, hand-made , hand woven sweater(a lovely deep blue) I bought in Skye, and fell in love with Edradour Whiskey--made in the smallest distillery in Scotland--which tastes wonderful. When I can, I'm buying another bottle. Plus, I have some great memories. Traveling alone is interesting. Next time(if there is a next time), I'll base myself in one area and explore the heck out of that area! Peace!

    Oh, sweetie. I am probably the ONLY person in the U.S. with a BA in Art History who has never been to Europe. Never stepped off this continent... so suckage is all relative. LOL

    No, not getting over doesn't suck, getting over and missing KEY sites from one of your ABSOLUTE BAR NONE favorite story cycles? Absolutely makes you crummy in your 'phile status. ;)

    Not getting over sucks, but is more of a "the universe is annoying" sucking, rather than an "I suck" situation.. :D

Lóegaire mac Néill - Lóegaire (floruit fifth century) (died c. 462), also Lóeguire, is said to have been a son of Niall of the Nine Hostages. The Irish annals and king lists include him as a King of Tara or High King of Ireland. He appears as an adversary of Saint Patrick in several hagiographies. His dealings with the saint were believed to account for his descendants' lack of importance in later times.

Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland. This area, whose name means valley of two lakes, is home to one of the oldest monasteries in Ireland, as well as two beautiful lakes and a few other sites of historical interest (most of which are connected with the monastery). It is a great place to go see if you're in Dublin as it is quite close by.

Must See: Dublin. Best explored on board of one of the numerous bus tours or on foot, Dublin is relatively small. It is however rich in history as well as full of sights and museums. Dublin can keep the tourist busy for a whole week! Avoid the city center on Saturdays when half the population of Ireland seems to go shopping here!
