Old Kilconly Cemetery and the Lartigue Railway

Old Kilconly Graveyard with new and old graves. It seems like every graveyard has a ruined church also.

View from Knockanore Mountain, just to the east of the area Jeremiah Lawlor came from. It is about 880 Feet high above the valley and we realized how high when we suddenly hit the (narrow of course) road going straight down.

It was way steeper than it looks here.

On the way back to Listowel we decided to stop and see the Lartigue Railway museum. This strange little railroad ran from Listowel to Ballybunion for about 30 years on its monorail, taking about 50 minutes. It was built mostly because the designer wanted to prove it could be done but it never caught on elsewhere.  It is turned around on a series of roundtables.

It runs for a short demonstration ride and then turns around.

An earlier post shows the outside of this, The Listowel Arms Hotel – we ate in the “porch” area for dinner. This hotel was definitely one with a feel of some class and we felt a little underdressed even.

Crab legs – sea food is SO good here!

Grilled Hake (fish) with a wonderful sauce and of course mash and vegetables.

The Banoffee pie was good but not as good as the one at the Horseshoe bar and restaurant.

Great view of the racetrack from the terrace.

And the River Feale

And that’s it for another day!
