I spent my last evening in Tipperary in the town of Nenagh. It is north of our old family district but close to lakes and I wanted to see both land and water before Dublin.
I found a nice hotel near the centre and booked in. Good price and very good room and service. After freshening up I drove out of town to Lough Derg, which I am sure you will know is a large lake to the north and forms part of the border of County Tipperary.
I visited the lakeside towns/resorts of Dromineer and Portroe before driving back to the hotel as the sun set. At the hotel I ‘dined’ in their restaurant, wandered in the garden then dozed in front of my TV until it was time to ‘hit the sack’. I felt happy about the day as I fell into a deep sleep!
Next morning I had a traditional breakfast before packing my bag, starting the car and heading south to pick up the M7 to take me east to Dublin and my last full day in Ireland.
