Ardmore and The Keepers of Eire event

I enjoyed my last night in Dublin at The Celt (the same place I was initiated with a bloke’s pint three years ago). Sorry, no such shenanigans this time, but there was another Grayson sighting.

Together we enjoyed a wee pint and some craic (fun).
I left Dublin behind and headed to Ardmore and my book event at The Cliff House Hotel. I set up in their library. While I didn’t read from The Keepers of Eire, I did have a chance to chat with people about the book and my Celtic heritage. Several people bought the book, including one lovely couple from County Cork mere minutes after he proposed in front of St. Declan’s Well.

Here is St. Declan’s Well. Can you find Grayson?

I also presented a signed copy of the book to Linda for the Cliff House Hotel for all their hospitality.

And finally, here are a couple of photos from sunset (around 9:45 p.m.) and moon rise (around 11:15 p.m.) from my room window at Duncrone B & B.

Ireland and The Gresham Hotel

I’ve arrived safe and sound in Dublin, Ireland. After a barely-stamped passport-does that even count?-I reached my hotel, The Gresham. In The Keepers or Eire, I have a couple scenes set in the pub of this beautiful hotel.

It’s cloudy and rainy today, and while out for a brief walk, I got caught in a downpour. Sure wish I could send all this rain to California to help with our drought.
After a brief nap I went out again. At near on 10:00 p.m. And the sun is just setting. Check out these photos of the sunset and the Millenium Spire.

Also, me and a bullet hole on one of the columns at the General Post Office.
