Wonderful!! Sep 14, 2000
We had a wonderful time exploring St. Brigid's and going up the Round Tower on the grounds. We were given an impromptu tour by Barbara, a British Ex-pat and Paddy (yes that was his name) the local groundskeeper.

My friend and I were invited to climb the Round Tower (one of two in Ireland that you are allowed to climb). It was a very cramped experience and you had to climb ladders from one "floor" to the next. My friend has a fear of heights and she started to get really anxious the higher we climbed- though you couldn't see outside she knew how far up we were and couldn't help herself. We got halfway up before she had to go back down. I would have climbed all the way, but I wasn't about to leave her so I came back down. Barbara gave us the certificate's that said we climbed to the top anyway. It's a great place!! (I'll add photos as I scan them)
