Photos from County Kerry (Page 1)

Kerry is the English form of CiarraÝ, itself derived from Ciarraighe, people of Ciar, the name of the pre-Gaelic tribe who lived in part of the present county. Just off the coast are a number of islands, including the Blasket Islands, Valentia Island and the Skelligs. See also Page 2 for more photos from Kerry
