So… My last day! I have to get on a plane and fly home the next morning. I had a different plan, but instead I decided I would try to do some of the things I missed on the days I slept through after the car wreck.
I drove from Arch House Tullyhona Bed & Breakfast in Florencecourt, Enniskillen, County Fermanagh toward Lexilip.
I’m not sure where this house is. I think it is in Leixlip. I just like it.
I still wanted to get a real look at Leixlip Castle. A man I met in the Emergency Room told me how to get to the other side of the river, to see it from that angle.
There it is! A view of Leixlip Castle I have never seen, from the other side of the River Liffey. See the windows?
This hydroelectric dam was built in 1945. Before that there was a waterfall here, the Salmon Leap. Salmon would leap up on the way upstream to spawn. Leixlip means Salmon Leap.
