Was awakened this morning a 10:00 and Mrs. Carswell had a lovely breakfast for me. Went down after breakfast and got Frank Z and we headed for town. Went to church at 11:30 St. Mary’s. Went shopping and visited the pubs. At 1:30 we went up to the castle and had a swell time looking it over. Shot lots of pictures all morning. At 4:30 we were back at our room & went to the corner pub and visited there until 7:30. Then we went to the dance. I was sure surprised when they danced like we do in the the states. It’s 11:00 now and I’m ready to turn in. I think we will leave in the morning for Ireland. Kind of hate to leave here now. I heard the invasion of Italy has started. It’s hell knowing your going to have to go back to the ugly business of war.
