Day 14 – Connemara

After 4.5 hours sleep I got up and went to Mass in Renmore with the Fuller/Byrne family. Then off to Inishbofin off the Galway coast. It is about 1.5 hours through beautiful, scenic Connemara. Good thing it was scenic as I seemed to spend lots of time following a slow moving farmer hauling cattle. It is also a road where you will encounter sheep or horse riders. Got to the ferry with 10 minutes to spare. Parked on the pier under a “No Parking” sign. “You’ll be grand this time of year”. So now I am staying with my friend Kevin Abeyta, another fine fiddler. This island is absolutely beautiful. Lots of seaside, boats, old stone cottages, sheep, cattle, dogs. Kevin and I played tunes til 2am at the house by the fire.
