These are a couple from an assortment of many pictures that Charles and Catherine McIntyre took on their trip to Ireland in 1974.
The first was taken on the Cliffs of Moher and the second was taken outside a tea shop in or near Kerry.
I went on a tour that visited the same cliffs in 2005 or 2006 and I can say with much confidence, it's a miracle that this smiling threesome were not immediately swept out to sea. They are standing very close to the edge.
When I visited there were tons of signs warning against getting too close to the edge but they didn't help a woman who was swept off the cliffs by a hard gust of wind the day after we were there.
