Blarney Post Office through the windscreen of my car. More rain.
Rain falls on one of the tables in the grounds of The Anglers Rest, Co Cork. After the roasting sun of a week or so ago the country has been deluged with sudden and heavy showers, thunder and lightning and in some areas flooding. A few weeks ago we couldn’t go out because it was […]
This is my desktop background. I love it! After Inch Strand on the way to Dingle in County Kerry the road gets very narrow and winds through the hills before coming down to sea level again. The picture above should be a familiar scene to anyone who has travelled that road! The day we drove […]

I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids.

I’m glad my wife Jacinta insisted we join AA Ireland. I’ve had over 15 years of almost trouble free driving (ok, the electrics in my Alfa 147 died once, but stopping and starting the engine fixed that, and it’s an Alfa Romeo, what do you expect?) but this morning as we drove into town and […]
