The Snapper's Tour of Ireland

"As if to contrast the pastoral equine experience I'd just had and remind me that some things are universal despite any seemingly idyllic landmarks one might encounter, I next walked directly beneath the Yellow Steeple and was drinking in the historic beauty when I encountered a group of teenagers who were huddled behind it to do some drinking of their own. They were pounding down what appeared to be a full rack of 24 bottles of beer and one of them asked me in a sardonic Irish lilt if I liked the “Yellow Steeple.” I didn't want to seem uncool and stodgy so I said that it was alright I guessed and they responded with “It is only a bleeding pile of stones, Man!” True enough I supposed and muttered something about them being 14th century stones that had seen quite a bit of history."
