We met Sr Sheila for breakfast and she took us to the Presention convent in Cork to have tea with the sisters! These sisters were so cute, they loved John , and all had great travel stories to tell. I wish I had taken a photo but mom got sick and we made a hasty exit. Sr Callie drove us back to the hotel. We put mom to bed and found a cab to go to the Blarney Castle to kiss the stone. John and I are now gifted in eloquence and will speak at gatherings for a small charge! Our cab driver was named Bertie, he came back to get us at a pub in the town of Blarney and took us to really old pub in Cork called the Mutton Lane. Then we searched for this other pub on a mid marked map, gave up and went back to Maynes wine bar and had bonaffi pie! Blarney was about 20kms from Cork.
