the famous cross & Ogham Stone in Kilmalkedar
Kilmalkedar ( Cill Maolcheadair ) is one of the most interesting sights of Dingle Peninsula : A small cemetery close to the "Gallarus Oratory" and there is one of the mystery "Ogham-stones" and an early celtic cross.
The celtic cross on the left of my picture was made of 1 piece of stone and the ogham-stone on the right of my picture is that small needle-like stone, that even has a small hole drilled in on the top. Such ogham-stones were taken as a calender maybe, but scientists are not really sure about that.
The small church of Kilmalkedar ( Cill Maolcheadair ) with its famous cross and Ogham-stone is in a short distance from Gallarus Oratory !
Tacky Souvenirs shops
Well, if youve made it to Killarney then youre either heading to The Ring of Kerry or coming back from it. See my Tralee page for details on the ring of Kerry. Killarney itself hasnt any major must see's. Its full of tourists and therefore full of tacky shops! but theres plenty of pubs to keep you amused! Killarney national park a few miles away has great scenery around the Muckross lakes.
The bus tour also took us round the Kerry Peninsula. Saw lots of typical 'country Ireland' with many stone walls. I think the tour is called "the ring of Kerry" Not sure though... (Once again; too long ago)
A Day in Killarney National Park
We drove through Killarney National Park as part of a driving trip around the island of Ireland. We stopped at Torc Waterfalls, checked out Ross Castle, and took a tour boat ride on Lough Leane (Lower Lake).
