We drove to Donegal which has a castle dating from the 15th century. We didn't visit it as it was to early in the morning and it was still closed.
Then we stopped at Creevykeel, one of the finest Court Cairns in Ireland. Built in the 3rd millennium B.C. it consists of a wedge-shaped mound, with a burial chamber opening off the open central court. Near the narrow end of the mound are two further graves. In the Early Christian Period iron was smelted in the central court.
We pass some very nice coastlines with the castle of Lord Mountbatten, an uncle of Queen Elisabeth, who was murdered in a bomb attack by the IRA in 1979, who planted a bomb in his fishing boat.
We arrive in the city of Sligo where the poet W.B. Yeats (1865-1939) was born.
