May 24 and 25 2019
This weekend I was at two Michael D. events, two book launches, MS busking and the Eucharistic procession. I took tons of photos. It will take a while to process them, to tell the story and to drip feed some of the best of them into blog posts. This week I’m busy with Writers’ Week so please be patient. There will be lean days yet and I’ll post the pictures for you.

Picturesque Adare, Co. Limerick
I stopped recently on my way home from Kildare. Adare is such a beautiful little town.
Adare Manor is a no-go area but otherwise the town is charming and welcoming.
Ballybunion Street Names
Remember I told you all about the palaver Listowel had over street names?
Well we could take a leaf out of Ballybunion’s book. They used a very simple method, e.g. if the road leads to a doon call it Doon Road. If it leads to a sandhill, call it sandhill Road
Here are just a few examples I snapped while I was in town last week
All self explanatory but wait……..
A few roads are named after famous Ballybunion people but that’s understandable.
