Holyhead, Wales

Last port of the trip is Holyhead. The town is less than 12,000 people and serves as a gateway to Dublin. Instead of spending the day on a tour bus, I walked around the town.
The town's name is pronounced Holly-head and went through various incarnations of this name for about 200 years before this version stuck in 1573.

 St. Cybi Church dates from the 13th century. It is built up next to the remains of a Roman fort.
