The Long Room, Trinity College, Dublin. The main chamber of the Old Library, the Long Room, is nearly 65 meters in length, and houses around 200,000 of the library’s older books. In 1860, the roof was raised to allow the construction of the present barrel-vaulted ceiling and gallery bookcases. Marble busts are placed down either side of the room which also contains the older surviving harp in Ireland.

We did Guinness today along with St Pat’s cathedral, Trinity College and Book of Kells, several pubs. Chilly and rainy – find the food very good – the beer also, according to Bill and Tim.

Wish you were along, too. We start driving tomorrow.

Cheers and Love, Va

Dear Noah

There are lots of sheep in Ireland, 500,000 on the Dingle peninsula alone – Most have little colored splotches on their backs so you can ell who owns them. There is also a lot of green country, because it rains almost every day!

Love, Tim
