I suppose I'd better start with the bad news - the second duckling didn't survive either: we were having to give it food and water by hand, so neither were obviously very strong. We will try again....
On a lighter note, I had a great evening down at John Foleys pub at Inch, where Colin was playing guitar. It had been really quiet up until about 11:00 and he was going to give it a miss, but about two minutes after I said there would be a rush, about a dozen people came in, followed by more a bit later! Colin was joined by Martin on bodhran, and there was a really good atmosphere down there.
Today we went to Ross Castle in Killarney National Park, which is a fine building, and walked out to Governors Rock. At this time of year the woods are full of wild garlic in flower, and bluebells. It looks amazing with huge drifts of white and blue flowers, with fine views over the lake through the trees.
