Around 3:30, it was time for the big match - Kerry v Dublin in the Irish football semi-finals. If you're a regular reader of this blog (and yahoo! thanks if you are!!) you know I don't ever write about sports. My understanding of most sports is summarized in a t-shirt that reads: "Go sports! Move the thing to the other thing!" I don't know if it was the incredible fast pace of the game, Olive's enthusiasm and near panic from moment to moment, its combination of football-soccer-basketball-volleyball moves or the Kerry banners waving from windows and cars around town, but I am hopelessly hooked on the Irish football. Kerry made a good showing and the game was neck and neck. Dublin won, but if there had been one more minute in the game, it surely would have been a tie.
We ended our enchanted day with dinner in Ballybunion, where we stumbled upon our favorite musician, Mickey MacConnell, playing a set as we walked into the room. Serendipity? No, the magic of Listowel and of Ireland. Well, and perhaps a wave of the wand from our favorite Irish princess, Olive Stack.

Seeing the beauty of cliffs of Ballybunion makes me dream to be there one day. Actually, it was a one fine day and how I wish I also have the time to do such thing! Exploring different places is slightly negative right now for me since I am busy with my job, but that is still part of dream that I want to accomplish at the right time. I am glad to see all these photos and the fact that you had fun makes me happy too! There are so many things to look forward about life, and I am happy that you guys are doing well!
