One of the two entrances to Knowth Mound with its guardian standing stone. Visitors are taken inside to see a replica of the chamber excavated here.

From here we headed back to Dublin and managed by great good luck to get two tickets to an evening of songs associated with James Joyce performed at the Joyce Centre. We have no photographs documenting our several evenings enjoying traditional and more modern Irish music in pubs around the country, but they are an unforgettable part of our visit. We couldn't always stay awake long enough to enjoy these sessions, however. They typically begin at 9:30 PM, at the earliest. Also not documented here is the fine food we had at many restaurants. Irish cooking has moved upscale in recent years.
