People at Work and Play: Ireland’s Natives and Tourists

The land- and seascapes of Ireland are breathtaking, yet the people are ordinary. More friendly, more ready for a laugh, maybe more inclined to celebrate, they are nonetheless much like the rest of us.

We enjoyed meeting Ireland’s people: the O’Briens, O’Connors, O’Donahues, O’Hares, O’Learys, O’Dwyers, O’Sheas, and the O’Tooles. We should also mention the O’Connells, O’Malleys, O’Ryans, and the O’Keefes. All wonderful people, full of fun and good wishes to us visitors.

The gallery below shows natives and visitors engaged in some ordinary activities. The last four photos are extraordinary in that they show a master craftsman at work at Waterford along with two special crystal creations. Hope you enjoy meeting them.
