My friend's family were from Dublin, but had a summer home in Donegal in a small village outside the town of Letterkenny. Well, when I say 'town' - back in those days it had 2 sets of traffic lights!

BUT we travelled all over - we usually spent nearly the whole of the 6 week summer holiday from school over there. We visited her family who were dotted all over Ireland - North and South. One of my favourite places is Cork and a smaller place outside it call Cobh (Cove).

I love Dublin - and have visited it often to do with my work. I also like Belfast. Oh and the ring of Kerry is wonderful. so is Blarney Castle. BUT the beaches of Donegal are probably amongst my favourite places in Ireland. They remind me so much of beaches at home. Oh and County Mayo was another favourite - one of her Aunts had married a farmer from there.

Brigid, my schoolfriend, now shares that summer home with her siblings - so I don't go there very often - they have a veritable tribe of children between them all!

My wife and I are planning a small tour to the British Isles next summer and hearing your descriptions is very exciting Catriona.

My Great, Great Grandfather was from Belfast.

Catriona, where was it? My parents have a holiday house near Letterkenny in a wee town called Rathmullan. The beaches there are spectacular! I have been there on holiday almost every year of my life and have loads of relatives around there and in Falcarragh.

Cobh! Yes, I've been there! Lovely - wish we could have stayed longer rather than just passing through.
My dear friend Seamus is from Donegal; he and his family live here now, but he speaks of it as tho its the most beautiful place on earth. Recently he saw a drawing I'd done of a thatched cottage, and bought it on the spot - he said he grew up in a home exactly like it. What a wonderful feeling I got, watching him respond to my work like that - those kinds of reactions make it all worth while.

Someday I hope to visit Donegal myself!

Siusaidh, It is a beautiful area, very wild, almost like part of the Scottish highlands. When I was young my grandparents lived in a thatched cottage with the open fire and food cooked over the top of it . There was also an oven at the side which was heated by the fire. It was so warm and homely.
There was also a bed recessed into the wall of the kitchen, almost like a cupboard where all us weans used to play.
