Summer at Garylucas Beach

People in Ireland are discouraged from travelling abroad right now due to the pandemic but luckily the weather is, or was glorious last weekend so everyone who could went to the beach. Lots of cars on the road but there was plenty of room on Garylucas Beach for everyone to be safely distanced from each other.

* We also have Covid19 deniers who think the pandemic is overblown and the mainstream media is spouting lies about the virus.

The old Tax Office as it was in 2017. It’s now demolished and there’s an ugly building site there. Should have put a park in there for people to enjoy.

Keem Bay, Achill Island, as seen from the narrow road up in the hills on the way there. Totally worth the slightly hair raising drive as it’s a beautiful beach!

A group of street entertainers smile and pose for the camera. I don’t remember what they did and don’t remember who they are so if anyone recognises them please comment! St. Patrick’s Street, May 2018.
