As much as I love to travel I am so glad I was born in Ireland. IfI was retired especially now that my home doesn't have the peace and quiet it had in the last 25yrs I would live south of the border easily.
The people are so friendly and easy going. There isn't the same rush trying to pack everything in.
There are lots of these famine pots throughout Ireland. http://www.irishfaminepots.com/
We find the old graveyards fascinating but this is the first that the actual remains were looking out at us!!
