Blue sky on a dull day Today is dull, there’s a glimpse of blue out, it’s cold, there’s a chilly wind blowing. Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kerry while on holiday. Great memories.
You’re a star So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler! In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of […]

I’m all for efforts to make Irish more appealing and stronger but what […]
