Kerry, Im on my way

Its been a life long dream to go to Ireland, and Now I find my family originated In Ardfert, I want to thank the 2 Gentlemen of this forum who helped me with information re the trip and to say I have taken your advice... Flying in on August 31st , staying in Killarney with hire car until the 6th September. so with the vast distances we travel here in Australia, I expect to see a lot of the countryside.

Just have to be patient now till August rolls around

Sunrise will be about 6.45 am and sunset around 10pm, so still nice long days. Generally the weather in early September is very pleasant, but we cannot guarantee there will be no rain/storms/anything else. It would not be particularly cold though - a sweater in evenings, and sometimes during the day, and a light waterproof would be ok.

Weather wise, think of an early winter in Tweed Heads, with a good chance of rain! Ardfert is about 22 miles from Killarney so you are not too far away from your origins. Having lived in Australia I am always reluctant to say roots! :) I'm llooking forward to sharing info with you over the coming months.

Hiii all who replied and in particular to Spiceloft and Kerry, Gidday again.

Great to hear I have good long days for my visit, not sure about the temp though, sheeesh just might freeze my butt off, though I did find temps that side of the world feel vastly different from here. At the moment we are cooking here in 88f heat with humidity through the roof.

Kerry & Spiceloft we'll be staying at the Neptune in Killarney so yep I own you both a beer. Couldnt get booking at Listowel.

Spice ya buggar no dont use that word to me,,,,, hahahahahah I know exactly what you mean.

Harvey... Youd be surprised at some of the roads we have to drive in this country lol, from goat tracks to freeways and at least you drive on the normal side, Corners and narrow I can do. Ill just put a sign on the car "Aussie at wheel" and you can all get outa my way.

As to my Interest, everything and anything... Not much of a shop person, much rather seeing the countryside, experiencing life in Ireland, just being there is enough for me. Im an artist so trusty camera will be recording to convert to canvas when I get home.

To you all MANY THANKS
