I traveled to the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland in 2007.  I went with an artist friend of mine, Kathleen Mooney.  We had many fun and interesting days exploring the rugged landscape, searching for ancient holy sites.  On the rainy days, we went to the Celtic Museum, coffee shops, bookstores, and second hand stores.  My most treasured souvenir of the whole trip was a songbook written by Jimmy MacCarthy.  I had never heard of him before, but I loved his lyrics.  I made the songbook into an altered art book.  Come to find out, Jimmy is the number one songwriter in Ireland.  I ended up buying one of his CD’s there.  Here are some of the altered pages from that book:
