Glin Castle on the banks of the Shannon

With St. Patrick’s Day next week, I am daydreaming about Ireland. I enjoyed attending the late 29th Knight of Glin, Desmond FitzGerald’s lecture stateside about Irish Furniture.  He was a respected scholar of Irish decorative arts.







The gardens at the Glin Castle are simply breathtaking.
