Some of the group joined in the dancing.

Even Bill joined the line dance! We arrive at our hotel, the Carlton in Tralee, where we find the annual Rose Festival being held. Next door is Fossett's Circus, so there is plenty of action in town.  - We enjoyed a spectacular fireworks show after sundown. Sunday, August 21 -- Our first stop of the day is at Blarney Castle, home of the Blarney Stone. A view of the Blarney Castle in the distance
We walked toward the castle and began our climb up the hill. The castle entrance We begin our climb to the top of the castle where the Blarney Stone is located
Most of the climb is by a circular stairway.  Here is Tina following us up the stairs. The view from the top We wouldn't want to be up here in a storm! Interior view of the center of the castle To kiss or view the Blarney Stone you have to lay on your back and - tilt backward as done here by Evelynn, the woman in the turquoise skirt.
