Day 23 – Claremorris to Tuam – 17 Miles

To put these last days in “flying” terms. I’ve reached cruising altitude and hit pockets of turbulence the last few days. I’m on approach for the final descent to Dublin. Feeling good overall. On and off storms. Early sunrise starts.

448 miles down, 152 to go.

23 days down, 9 to go.

If you look at Ireland, the storms come in from the Atlantic Ocean – going west to east/northeast. My problem is I have been going south into the wind. But after tomorrow, I’ll have the wind at my back.

Running across countries is a dance. A dance with the traffic. And a dance with the weather. I have a narrow window tomorrow morn of 5-6 hrs to go 21 miles to Galway before the next storm, thus completing Leg 2.

The last High King of Ireland, Rory O’Connor, built a castle here in 1164. In the last century, an ancient tower from King O’Connor’s castle was uncovered.

In recent history, Tuam built a moving tribute and garden to a native Irishwoman of Tuam who perished in the 9/11 attacks.
