Re: A Visit to Ireland: (Part 7) the Cliffs of Moher

rbciao ·
We've been to The Cliffs of Moher twice and each time was most enjoyable. Walking along these cliffs is exhilarating and the views of the Atlantic Ocean are beautiful. A very short drive from The Cliffs is the quaint little town of Doolin, which is also on the sea. It was late afternoon when we departed the The Cliffs and just decided, on a whim, to stop in Doolin to find a b&b to spend the night. We saw a sign for several b&b's, but decided to try a place called Susan Daly's...

Thanks for the great info, Rbciao! I also love finding little places like this along my journey. Amazing how a nice B&B experience adds so much to your enjoyment of the day. And your photo of the cliffs provides a very different perspective and makes one appreciate how tall they really are! The Cliffs of Moher are beautiful, but the day we were there, while it was clear and sunny, the wind was bitterly cold. It would not have been a problem with proper gear but as we were trying to...

Do the modern Canadian folks still use the original names that the indigenous people used for local places ?

Sometimes we do, Garry. Like Lake Minnewanka, Kakabeka falls, and so on. But more often Anglicized names are used, or translation of native names into English (eg. "Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump"). What say you, Ottoman?

Hi Garry RF and DrFumblefinger. Thanks for you interest on today's pic of the day...the Sleeping Giant. Garry, in Northwestern Ontario (and many other areas of Canada), aboriginal names are used quite commonly. In Thunder Bay, many medical clinics, schools, recreational centers, and so on have an aboriginal name, not to mention the many towns and landmarks in the area that also have aboriginal names. A major piece of Northwestern Ontario's history involves the fur trade (which of course the...

Passing through Towns in Australia and North America (incl. Canada) I like to stop off and take a few photo's of places that have been named after places in the UK. In Chester PA. I was asked "Do you have a Chester too?" - " Yes and a Jersey, York, Boston, Washington, Dover, Bethesda, Birmingham and a few more " Didn't know you had a Fort William until I was watching a "Who Do You Think You Are" TV show recently. A female Celebrity was tracking her ancestral trail from the UK.

I remember reading with fascination about this in a couple of articles by Barry Lopez. It was saddening to hear of the wanton damage done on the past, but equally gladdening (?) to learn that intact granaries and other structures are still in existence but very closely guarded. Such archaeological evidence is a delight and tells us a lot about these early inhabitants ❤️
