Sunny(!) wedding in Glandore, County Cork
And despite the torrential rain on the way down to Cork, on Monday 27th the clouds parted to set a glorious scene for Matt and Nuala’s wedding in The Rectory overlooking the beautiful fishing village harbour of Glandore. It rained the day before, it *belted* it down the day after, but the day itself couldn’t have been better.
We spent some time exploring as well and headed out to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most south-westerly point. I was amazed by how luxuriant the plant life was, with flowers bursting out of the hedgerows and palm trees lining the coast. Admittedly the palm trees were getting a good bending from the enthusiastic Atlantic breezes, but that just added to the vital freshness of the scene.
On our last full day in County Cork we visted Inchydoney beach just outside Clonakilty, where Paul burnt off what energy he had left after his antics on the wedding dance floor by flinging Felix about.
And finally on our last day, we got to see Cashel, stopping off for a lunch break there on our way back to Dublin.
