We set out to explore east of Tragumna, specifically Castletownsend, but whatever else we passed along the way. Our lunchtime destination was Mary Ann’s of which we had heard wonderful things. We stopped by ruins on the way and enjoyed the 40 shades of green that enjoyed the rain. Lunch itself was good, though not mind-blowing. I had the tandori chicken. The chips (French fries) were too big without the outer crisp and inner soft I prefer. The entire lunch for four of us cost a whopping 83 Euros. Ouch.
My favorite part of Castletownsend was actually the small church cemetery. The history of the town was created by those buried there – the names Townsend, Sommerville, and Ross were prevalent. Sommerville and Ross as a duo were writers who are known for their book The Real Charlotte.
