Into the woods and beyond
The magic of Ireland unwraps as one heads away from the gray concrete of the urban center and onto the narrow roads of the countryside. It’s like backing into a different time period. Landmarks are pubs and churches rather than route numbers, and every town has one or two friendly folk willing to talk your ear off.
The Irish claim that there are forty shades of green in the springtime. Then again, they tell good stories, too.
