I met Maureen O'Hara!!.....well kinda

Today Elizabeth and Thady, my in laws took Morgan and I on a drive to Ashford Castle in Cong Co.Mayo as we drove into the beautiful city we were so happy to see that we had visited during The Quite Man festival as it was here that the John  Wayne movie was filmed! 




we grabbed a bite to eat in a lovely bar/B&B, in Cong the one thing I noticed is how well kept it is, outside each building baskets full of roses hand - it is so beautiful






Once we finished our lunch we headed to the stunning castle, Ashford Castle is surrounded by such beauty - it was first built in 1228



The Quite Man has always been a film close to my heart and for one reason only Maureen O'Hara! I love this woman, What a surprise for us that when walking through the castle gates we were met by a parade and the woman herself!

We walked around the castle taking in the views and enjoying the sunshine
