St. Patrick’s Day Contest Entry: Infinitely Intriguing

In Win A Trip to Ireland by TonyLeave a Comment

Oh my gosh, many places in Ireland intrigues me. For example, Boyne Valley in County Meath which is a designated world Heritage Site. The massive megalithic ancient passage tombs dates back to times of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth is intriguing By the way, older than Pyramids of Giza & Stonehenge.  To me, I am thinking wow, who built this & how. For example, Newgrange, 5000 years old Ireland most famous prehistoric site. Who bestowed the knowledge to build this?  The scientific sophistication of illumination of sunbeam in winter solstice, Dec. 21, thru a roof box.  The precision, engineering, mathematics behind it in ancient time is mind boggling. I really want to see this visitor attraction. One of the must see is the Hill of Tara in Co. Meath.  It is just the ancient monuments I like to see.  It transports me back in time.  I would rather visit & see that than modern buildings, shopping centre or theatre. Of course, in the neighbourhood lied the Battle of the Boyne, the famous battle in 1690.  When you are there, you are literally standing on ground where critical battle was fought.

Another splendid place I want to see is the ring of Kerry.  That is my thing: ancient monuments, castles, town, etc. The scenery & grand coastline amaze me.  I would be definitely in awe of Ireland’s natural spectacle.  The Ring of Kerry offers rural greenery & beauty springs.  I am sure the soap Irish spring gets its inspiration from it.  So are dozens of local folklores, songs, movies, etc. The Ring of Kerry is particularly intriguing in sense of lkes, flora & fauna, beaches, windswept cliffs, & color green & yellow checkered hills.  It is like a Picasso painting.  A mystical place where dreams are made of.

Being a big foodie myself, I would go insane of what Ring of Kerry has to offers. Delicious & sumptuous cheeses, shellfish, seafood, bakery & the world-famous lamb.  In fact, I heard there are places in Ireland where there are more lambs than humans.  & in there, it has more eatery & restaurants than pubs. I would probably gain 10 pounds from this trip.  A must see & I have heard of & known of is the Iveragh Peninsula.  I just love this little gem, unknown out of way places where treasure landscape is divine.  I get secret pleasure from finding & seeing this kind of places where few humans in their entire lifetime would never see.

Now the grandmother of them all, I love to see the Giant’s Causeway.  Very intriguing. I truly believe there were giants walked on earth before us.  I saw the picture of the 40000 basalt columns in Country Antrim near town of Bushmills.  I know about local legend.  Those big columns cannot be explained away by natural formation of volcanic eruption.  It is exactly what the local folklore explained. Giants built those as bridge & there was a battle between giants there.  What you are witnessing are true relic of the existence of giants.   The Fionn mac Cumhaill is not a myth. A bucket list for me to see & touch in person.   I don’t have much in life.  No money, girlfriend, friends, house, life, job, career, future, hope, etc.  If I miss this one, I will never in my lifetime to go. Pick me, pick me! Your next winner!!! Show me the money!!! I have always wanted to go see Ireland.  I heard it is beautiful there.  My childhood dream to see it since.   It would be a dream come true and means more to me than anyone else to win. 🙁  Starving artist here desperately needs the trip to have fun and feel alive and inspired again. A life changing experience.  Top of my bucket list. Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year is to win this contest. Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. 🙂
