May their cause be ne'er forgotten, said the Galtee Mountain Boy. * Images are public domain or licensed via Creative Commons: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Galtee_Mountains.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rock_of_Cashel,_Tipperary.jpg http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394091990/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394091994/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394091998/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394092003/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394092006/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiduggan/394092011/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/tim_uk/5616145267/
