Should I watermark any photos I upload here? I’d really appreciate your advice! Note - I am not a professional photographer and am just getting started with photography but this question is just in case I snap an absolute worldie of an image 😂
The autumn colours 🤩 in the Phoenix Park looking amazing and some spots are great for pictures 🙏
Phoenix Park is an urban park in Dublin lying 2–4 km west of the city centre, north of the River Liffey. 🏞️ Its 11 km perimeter wall encloses 707 hectares it is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city. It includes large areas of grassland and tree-lined avenues, and since the 17th century has been home to a herd of wild fallow deer. 😀 The English name comes from the Irish fionn uisce meaning "clear water"
After the Normans conquered Dublin and its hinterland in the 12th century, Hugh Tyrrel, 1st Baron of Castleknock, granted a large area of land, including what now comprises the Phoenix Park, to the Knights Hospitaller. They established an abbey at Kilmainham on the site now occupied by Royal Hospital Kilmainham. 🏛️ The knights lost their lands in 1537 following the Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII of England. Eighty years later the lands reverted to the ownership of the King's representatives in Ireland.😀
On the restoration of Charles II of England, his Viceroy in Dublin, the Duke of Ormond, established a royal hunting park on the land in 1662. It contained pheasants and wild deer, making it necessary to enclose the entire area with a wall.🗺️
Baltimore Beacon 🤩 is a great spot for nice pictures and really worth a visit 🙏
The Baltimore Beacon is a white-painted stone beacon 😍 at the entrance to the harbour at Baltimore, County Cork. The beacon was built at the order of the British government following the 1798 Rebellion. It was part of a series of lighthouses and beacons dotted around the Irish coast, forming a warning system.🙂
The beacon is locally known as "Lot's Wife", after the Biblical woman turned into a pillar of salt🏞️
Baltimore is located on the Wild Atlantic Way.⭐ To reach Baltimore Beacon, follow the road that leads along the bay and turn left after approximately 700 meters. There is a parking area at the end of the road, from where it is only a short walk to reach the tower.🏛️
Glendalough - County Wicklow - 23/3/18
Glendalough is a glacial valley formed during the last ice age. It is most well known for a monastic settlement which dates back to the 6th century.
The Book of Glendalough was written there around 1131. The manuscript is one of three to have been produced in pre-Norman Ireland. Also known as Rawlinson B 502, the book currently resides in the Boolean Library, Oxford.
However, there is still debate as to whether Rawlinson B 502 is actually the Book of Glendalough.
‘Bóthar an Bhfuacht’.. Dán a chum mé faoi Oiche Shamhna!! .............. “Rith mé síos an bóthar,
le an ghaoith ar mo dhroim,
‘S nuair a chonaic mé é bhí mé preachta leis an bhfuacht
mar loch san Albain ‘am Nollaig.
Ach Oiche Shamhna a bhí ann agus bhí sé am an phúca.
… agus bhraith mé gach uile duine ina spiorad
ag rith thar mé,
‘S in aice liom.
Bhíodar ag rith in adhaigh rud eile,
Ní mise, … buíochas le dia.
Stop mé ag rith agus ba bheag nár thit mé i laige,
nuair a chonaic mé an radharc ós mo chomhair.
Bhí sé ar nós ailearán caileach,
‘S bhí gach taibhse lena chlann agus a chairde ag dul suas mar
Ceobhrán go neamh.
Soar ón dorchas faoi thalamh.” #trademark#irishpoetry#filíocht#filíochta@irish_examiner@raidiorira#oicheshamhna#witchinghour@anfocalul#magicmushrooms#spookyseason#thefullirish_

Dunquin meaning "Caon's stronghold", is a Gaeltacht village in west County Kerry 😍 Dunquin lies at the most westerly tip of the Dingle Peninsula, overlooking the Blasket Islands and really worth a visit. The most western point of Ireland is closeby 😀
