The Long Way Home

I was in Tubbercurry on Friday and instead of taking the normal main road home I decided to take a bit of a detour. I headed up towards Lough Easkey – this is one of my favourite places in Sligo. If you haven’t been there yet it’s well worth a visit. Take the road out […]

Sunshine and seasides

It’s been a fantastic few days here in Ireland. It’s just the most beautiful place in the world when the sun is shining.

Spooky Easkey

The folks of Easkey have been busy this week with their Annual Scarecrow Festival. It’s really worth a visit, their is so much work that goes into the scarecrows and of course Easkey is a beautiful place to visit anyway…do check out the coast road and Easkey Castle too.

Ballina and back

Yesterday I went to Ballina for the day. I had to go to a couple of shops there so I tied it in with a visit to Belleek Woods. It’s a beautiful forest just outside Ballina town and along the banks of the River Moy.

Scary Sligo

If you go down to Easkey today you’re in for a big surprise! The Easkey Scarecrow Festival is taking place and it’s great! There’s a scare around every corner! It’s putting the wild into the Wild Atlantic Way!
