Allan and I visited Ireland in the spring of 2006 with some of our friends who ran the Connemara Marathon. We climbed Croagh Patrick, the mountain St. Patrick built a church on top of and where pilgrims often traverse barefoot to the summit. I met a few sheep on the way to the top of the rocky peak which inspired this sheep taking a tea break. Their wool was dyed to mark who they belonged to. I had a lovely time in the west of Ireland and would love to visit again someday.
