Our next port was Cobh (pronounced Cove) and we caught the train from there into Cork. We had intended getting a bus from Cork bus station to Blarney, but when we got off the train we saw an open top bus in the station car park. It was doing a tour of some of the sites of Cork and then going on to Blarney where we could go back in 15 minutes or get the next open top bus back about 2 1/2 hours later, which we did.
According to legend, the ringing of the angelic trumpets will sound to alert the people of Cork of the imminent end of
the world and allow citizens to be among the first to enter heaven.
After our walk we went back to the pub by the car park and had a late lunch and Guinness whilst we waited for the bus to arrive.
