Today is St Patrick’s day here in Ireland and its a public Holiday, For many people religion will play a big part in the day.

Personally I love the outdoors far more and will spend most of the day walking and exploring the local landscape, I find nature and open spaces far more spiritual.

The following gallery of images are just some images taken in and around the wonderful county of Kilkenny.

What ever your doing today enjoy yourself and a happy St Patrick day.
