What about the gardens?
The gardens were not great. There was a swimming
pool that was heated, so they thought, but as it was only
about seventy, it was too cold for me.
You did drive around?
Yes, we drove around.
You didn't go near the northern part of Ireland?
No. We saw a lot of a charming woman, Sybil Connolly,
a dress designer, who is the only Irish dress designer of any
note in the history of mankind.
What about Molly Parnis?
Well, she's not Irish.
Isn't she Irish?
And she doesn't live in Ireland. This woman operates
out of Dublin and has American clients. One from Texas
came in her plane just to have fittings - from Texas. Can
you imagine that?
Well, she's very charming. She has innumérable friends
and took us to visit all kinds of people and lovely places,
which were very attractive and charming.
