      We don't have a place down there or anything but if I won the lotto I'd buy a place somewhere between Castlegregory, Clochán and Dingle. I'm a shyt surfer but I love parking up down there and failing miserably, I love a few pints and food in Spillanes and I love a few pints in Adams or the Courthouse in Dingle. We camp in Sandy Bay now and then, sadly Spillanes was closed till five today and we'd to hit the road.

      Where else in our part of Ireland can you walk in a place like those photos and then wander the beach ten mins later?

      Totally undervalued part of the country, gladly most folk haven't a clue about it, or lough doom, or The Gallarus


      Or dancing in The Droichead

          I've enjoyed many good scuba dives around the Maharees.

            Glanteenassig? Being from Tralee, I spent most of my life surfing and mountainbiking back that way. It is a beautiful part of the world but the amount of holiday homes dotted randomly around back near Ballyferriter would make you weep. The planning department should have been locked up for it.

            And of course a special mention to Coillte for clear-felling the majority of the beauty spot in Cowboy's photos. It's a mystery to me how one department of Coillte spend time creating scenic walks in the forest and another Coillte department comes along and wipes the whole thing out.

                Happy St Patrick's Day folks. Here in the UK, a normal day nothing different about traffic this morning. Apart from a new Stop/Go - setting them up overnight is a national pastime - added 10 minutes to the drive.

                Wherever Munster fans are in the world today, have a good one!

                  Happy St Patricks day from Madrid, folks... It's sunny and I'm the only Irish man in my company, so people are all stopping by to say hello... :D
                  He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                        Dubai is cloudy, grey and looks like it's going to rain. Couldn't feel more at home.

                          No relation and don't know him but I love to go in to look at the picture. It's a lovely reminder of all that's good in Ireland.

                                I hate Saint Patricks Day!

                                Since time immemorial, it has always been the day on which I tackle the grass (I'd be lying if I called it "the lawn") for the first time after the winter break. So I'm just back from the petrol station with a full jerrycan of fuel for the grass monster and I'm about to embark on the five hour cut. The missus keeps nagging me to buy a ride-on, but I regard them as an admission of impotence and old age, so I'm not going there yet.
