Mom Camp Day 6
Before leaving Cork, we needed to grab a picnic lunch for our drive to Dingle. We decided to stop by the Cork English Market. The place was fantastic. We only had 45 minutes to stay and I wish we had had longer. It had everything you could want Greek olives, fresh fish, chocolate, fresh produce and of course Irish tea. The Captain and the kids had a delightful time roaming the stalls.
Then it was off for the drive to Dingle. But of course along the way I had to insist on a stop on the mom tour of the of the obscure! Took a quick detour to see where Michael Collins was assassinated–Beal na Blath. The site has a tasteful memorial cross dedicated to Collins.
Inch beach was the next stop. We did some amazing shell collecting and stopped for a beachside picnic lunch.
Before hitting the village of Dingle itself, we stopped by the South Pole Inn. This little bar was operated by local hero Tom Crean. For those who don’t know, Crean was 2nd command on the Endurance.
We started hitting the Dingle sites after that.
