Lyrics by The Dubliners

 

I loved the ground she walked upon

And the air she would softly breathe

The feather touch of her gentle lips

That only a fool would leave

We started our day at Sandy Cove Beach. Apparently this is the best place for a 15 degrees (59F) morning swim. Oh, the bravery.

 

But we tasted forbidden wine

Though I loved the ground she walked upon

I could never have made her mine

A short stop at the Fern House in Bray brought us warm tea, tasty scones and amazing local products!

 

The swallows fly all along the canal

And I watch with a heavy heart

In dizzy spins they dive and wheel

Touch wings and then depart

The mist was hanging low, but the scenery was still breath taking

 

As the summer fades away

Though I loved the ground she walked upon

I knew that I could not stay

A local pub to warm up with a drink and hearty meal, while listening to great stories

 

The swallow is a summer’s child

And she flies before the cold

Though I loved the ground she walked upon

She was not mine to hold

We make our way into Glendalough, an early Medieval monastic settlement. The rain only added to the mystical feeling!

Our tour guide understood that Glendalough lake is one of the best places to taste Jameson Irish Whiskey… Good stuff!

 

But it was easy to pretend

Though I loved the ground she walked upon

A summer has to end

A summer has to end

Too bad we had to leave again at the end of the day!

With many thanks to our great guide Denis, for showing us his home country and entertaining us with many fun stories about his personal history and the Irish culture. It was a beautiful day!
