Glencar Waterfall and Parke's Castle, Kilmore, Co. Leitrim, Ireland - 18th August 2019

It's a day of exploring the local area, as we head over to nearby Glencar Waterfall with the "Loudies". After that, we split up and continue on to Parke's Castle - a nice, er, castle, on the banks of Lough Gill. Then we all meet up at Philly and Davida's for a mass dinner of roast lamb, and finally - thanks to Evelyn doing the babysitting - the adults get a night out in a couple of Manorhamilton pubs - Biddy's and Market Bar
