"Irish Paintbox"
County Kerry, Ireland

In September, 2002, I went to Ireland for two weeks. This was my first visit and because I had so little time I limited my trip to S.W. Ireland. I had talked to many people before the trip and had heard the following:
1. There is very little use of color in Irish architecture.
2. Although it is an attractive country, it rains every single day.
3. Every day the Irish greeting is a cheery "top of the morning to ye!"

You can't believe everything you hear.

1. If you look at the image above you'll find some use of color.
2. During the two weeks I was there I witnessed one rainfall which lasted about 10 minutes. (I should note that the residents told me that it had rained almost without interruption from May through July; the day I got there a dry high front moved in and stayed for two weeks.)
3. On my last morning there I asked my bed and breakfast host why nobody every greeted me with "top of the morning to ye!". He replied that the Irish don't say that.
