We covered a lot of ground both on the road and in Irish history over the course of the two days represented here. We had only one overnight stay in Westport as we journeyed from Galway and eventually into Northern, Ireland.
It was here, traveling through what has become known as the Valley of Ghosts that for me, a real understanding of the famine and its lasting affect on Ireland.
And, in addition we have more villages, ruins, centuries old high crosses, castles and one of Ireland's Nobel Prize winning writers.
