In Portmagee, Ireland, life hinges on about thirteen small boats, chugging to and from the small dock a few times a day. Those few vessels ferry tourists to the Skellig islands, or up and down the stunning coasts and along the Kerry Cliffs; just as they carry bright-eyed adventure seekers across the water, in return they bring home the lifeblood of the town's economy.
As I drove down in the morning, the curves of the highway were spotlit by beams of sunlight pie
Yesterday my and my friends went to Mizen Head in West Cork, after we visited the tourist attraction we went for a trip to the much lesser known Smugglers Cove.
It's quite a long drive down a narrow road with nothing but farmland either side.
You carry on driving until you reach a dead end and an area you could park maybe 3 vehicles.
There is a little path that takes you down to an area you can moor a boat. The views on the walk down were well.....ill let you see for yourselves.
The small, I guess you would call it a pier could no doubt be used for bringing in drugs ect, I guess that's how it got its name.
The views from here were nothing short of spec
Pictured above is the Lia Fáil (Stone of Destiny) outside of the nation's Capital of Dublin. It is part of The Hill of Tara, a location mentioned at the very beginnings of Ireland's recorded mythological cycles. Earlier in this century it was threatened by the construction of a semi-private motorway, during which archeologists found further structures, revealing a 1,000ft-wide complex existed there before. The Lia Fáil acted as a supernatural guardian of the High Kingship of Ireland as every contender must stand under it in the hopes that it would yell out a scream proclaiming that person to be a rightful ruler. This ceremony te
Hello to everybody!
A few months ago with friends we left visiting Dublin and its neighborhood. It is really the destination which I recommend to you. We arrived towards 01:00 (a local time) to Dublin, we joined our youth hostel which was not easy to find because it was in a small alley.
The welcome was brilliant, the desk clerks was very nice, to tell you, we crossed several to discuss the best places to be visited, about the best restoring where to eat.
Here is the beginning of our adventure, I would soon take out an article which will make service in a row!
Robbery with a Fountain Pen
by charley | Jun 25, 2017
This article appears in the July issue of Irish American News. It was written just before Leo Varadkar surprised no one at all by indicating that he was to be a case of “Out with the old, in with exactly the same…”
It’s a bit messy-looking, to be honest. In fact, I’m surprised they haven’t already been moved on, just in case they frighten the tourists.
It’s just off Galway’s central Eyre Square; so it should be disconcerting to see the homeless settling themselves down for the night, spreading out their few belongings and huddling up in the doorways. It could give people the wrong idea; it could make a lie of the oft-repeated boasts about the country being in ‘recovery’.
‘Let’s keep the recovery going’, crowed Enda Kenny and his motley sideshow in an endless loop last year. Until it dawned on even those as disconnected from reality as our lot, that perhaps it was a more than usually ignorant soundbite.
I’m talking to
@eroche has already published an article on Dublin pride but I thought I'd add my balcony view.
Dublin city centre is all torn up with the Luas works, so this year the Gay Pride parade ended with an event on Smithfield Square. The city council fenced off the entire square with a wall of black screens, behind which was a stage, some picnic tables and a couple of food vans.
There were only 2 entry points, so that when the parade of several thousand arrived at 3pm, it took until at least 4.30 to get them inside. This, coupled with it being a no alcohol event, a hard sell to the Irish, meant that there was more of a party going on on the street outside the fences than there was inside.
I'm delighted to share with you some really awful videos made from my balcony on a crap phone.
MOST SOUTHERLY PINT IN IRELAND MURAL
Came across this mural today on the side of the most Southerly pub in Ireland.
It's located in Crookhaven a beautiful little village in West Cork.
Today me and my friends decided to take a trip to Mizen Head in West Cork.
It's Ireland's most Southwesterly Point and home to an old beacon house that they've turned into a tourist attraction.
It's priced at €7.50 to enter and the views alone are worth it.
It's an absolutely stunning location.
So take a picture tour of this most stunning location!
There was a festival atmosphere this weekend in Dublin. Dublin pride week seemed more of an event this year than previous years. It was noticeable that corporations took it to heart and most multinational companies offices were decorated in the colours symbolising the LGBT movement.
There was a festival atmosphere in the city center and a parade left St. Stephens green and went all the way to Smithfield where the crowd was addressed by the Taoisach (Prime Minister)
All the big tech companies had a float, Google, FB, Air BnB, Microsoft, Salesforce, ....
Domestic Companies were also well represented, Iris
Around 5 years ago I was having a bus tour in Ireland. One of the stop was a Horse Ranch. At that time, all I could use to take picture was my Ipad2. But I happen to capture this beautiful white Horse racing on a big green ranch. It was coming for being fed.Doesn't it look like a movie. I wish I could have a better camera at that time.
I uploaded my first youtube video just for steemit!!!!! Steemit does change my way of using social media.
We bought some snack from the driver to feed the Horse. The driver told me it was dangerous to have me hands like this cause it could bite me. I should have let my palm open
Please comment and upvote:)
While browsing my own photo - archives I found few picts which were sort of unusual or better said atypical - all were made few years ago in Ireland (Northern Ireland & The Republic of Ireland)
