The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

On a particularly foggy morning in December 2002 I wandered around Ballincollig Regional Park. I photographed the weir that morning in the mist. Wasn’t much to be heard except the rushing of the water.

Some fifteen years later the centre of the weir would collapse. The OPW may rebuild it at a cost of over €1m. Hopefully that happens.

The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The oldest bridge in Ireland is claimed to be this bridge built by St. Patrick in the 6th century. It’s on the grounds of Moville Boutique Hostel in Co. Donegal.

I say “claimed” because there are others such as the Esker Bridge in Dublin and this one in Trim.

Who knows? The hostel is lovely and well worth a visit so you might as well visit the bridge while you’re there!

The sun peeks out over Balina, Co Tipperary

Looking out over the River Shannon from the Balina side to the town of Killaloe on the west bank of the river.

Hmm, I do believe this is the first photo I have posted in Tipperary, and half the photo is in Co Clare!
