The cliffs of the west coast of Clare are absolutely magnificent. However, it is obvious to a close observer that they are also constantly changing. The relentless pounding of the wind and the waves gradually erodes them away until they crumble into the sea. In many places the ground you are walking on extends beyond the solid face of the cliff. Additionally, the grass is frequently wet, and often steeply sloping. Use caution when approaching the edge of the cliff and be sure you are standing on solid ground. You don't want a magnificent holiday to end in tragedy, and a slip could only have one possible outcome.
I arrive on the 26th December, 2004 and the airport ground handling team lock me out of the terminal ! I may have been last off the plane, but it's a it much to lock me out of the entire building - very welcoming I must say.
They then manage to break the luggage belt and spend an hour retrieving people's luggage from the innards of the airport. My cot comes out last of all.
According to other people standing around such delays are not uncommon around here.
Oh bugger, I'm beginning to sound like my father.
Yeh we read the reports and on arrival listened to reports of killings but our family felt safe in limerick. It does sound that there are troubles on the estates listed. Limerick is worth a short visit, its full of cars though and parking is about a £1 an hour. We didnt fancy the Castle choosing Bunratty instead. Couldnt believe how many female power walkers there are!
