Tell me you don't find this hauntingly beautiful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7SCHScz4Pc ‘Way Out East’ live on TG4 Ed Deane on TG4 Arts Show performing ‘Way Out East’ from his instrumental CD ‘Slideshow’ on the Blue Navigator label.
I have always like Tracy Chapman's song Fast Car and I think that it is practically impossible to improve upon her studio version of that song. Buy I do love Ireland's Foy Vance and his cover of Fast Car is FANTASTIC. You have to love Foy's guitar work. He is a very accomplished instrumentalist, no doubt. But that voice of his... holy cow. He sings directly from his soul. This is a skill that, while can be developed with years of study, some musicians just have it. I am sure I would well up hearing him sing happy birthday. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/MeEACP2wRhk?rel=0?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> As an extra treat here is Foy Vance singing his own Bangor Town. AMAZING..... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Uxsf_QUYxzY?rel=0?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

## Tyler Bleyendaal | Munster ---- !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmdf1cz7Hfhur5qCRbWFn3dE9QWAnGW1zAEjP9Unh27SEi/image.png) ---- The 27 year-old Munster fly-half and All-Black expat will become eligible for Ireland national team selection on the opening day of the 6 nations next year, where Ireland will play France. Tyler previously played for club sides Canterbury and the Crusaders, scoring 237 points from 33 apps and 112 points from 20 apps respectively. He also had a stint in the All-Blacks U20 squad with 82 points coming from a measly 5 appearances. The talented hotshot has shown his worth in Munster colours over the past couple of seasons, and has been selected for a recent Irish training camp by head coach Joe Schmidt. No doubting that Bleyendaal will come in handy, with my thoughts being that he would play the easier 6 Nations games against the likes of France and Italy, with the recent Lions fly-half Johnny Sexton playing in the more important games. ------ ## Bundee Aki | Connacht ------ !

"known locally as "The Big Stone" (from Irish an Chloch Mhór, meaning 'the big stone'), is a huge granite boulder found about 1,000 feet (300 m) above the village of Rostrevor, County Down, Northern Ireland, on a relatively flat area of Silurian metasedimentary rock on the side of Slieve Martin overlooking Carlingford Lough and the Cooley peninsula in County Louth. The granite boulder, which has a calculated mass of 50 tonnes, is a glacial erratic, thought to have been transported from Scotland (from an island in Strathclyde bay) and deposited by retreating ice during the last Ice Age. The Cloughmore Stone is usually the venue at Easter where the residents of Rostrevor would usually go up and roll their Easter eggs down the hill. This has become sor
Close to my mother's house in County Antrim, N. Ireland is an odd Bronze Age standing stone. It's been there for thousands of years. Standing stones aren't that unusual in Ireland, but this one is really special in that it has a man made hole piercing it that's just big enough for a small human hand to pass through. No one knows what purpose the Holestone served, but it was obvious of some significance to the people who created it. It sits on top of a natural rocky promontory with sheer vertical walls about 3 metres high all round and seems to have a causeway leading up to it The stone itself is 1.5 metres high (roughly shoulder height), with a 10cm diameter hole cut into it. ![IMG_20170820_161732.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQkVyurW61XQCh7JKY2wPZnKboeXDea7cDhxTq4w3zFKM/IMG_20170820_161732.jpg) 'Recent' tradition in the last few hundred years holds that it is a betrothing stone where lovers would hold hands through the hole and pledge their love to each other. The magical power of the stone was then

![029.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdy6kYk96FoAJ3y4Zu1bG5iEcrx5ecVwvCXe98q7XEPTt/029.JPG) Today I made a trip to Dublin Bay area, from Howth to the North Bull Island. It's been a foggy day but I enjoyed it. Dublin fog has kept many tour company from doing a day tour in the bay area. During my visit, I've barely seen any tourists. I wasn't see much of the Dublin Bay view but still I loved it, especially my visit to the Bull Island. As a fan of the traditional Asian ink paintings, so I’m not so picky at the weather when on holidays. I appreciate the misty sceneries. >今天我去都柏林湾的霍斯半岛和北牛岛玩了一天。天气跟昨天一样不是很好，一大早整个海湾都被雾笼罩，虽然如此我还是玩的挺开心。大雾让都柏林市内的很多旅行社无法组织一日游，所以整个都柏林海湾都特别安静，不被打扰。都说爱尔兰是个音乐和诗歌的圣地，我想也就是这种阴郁的天气才造就了情感丰富的诗人和音乐家吧。我

Consensus is that McGregor has no chance to finish, much less win, this fight. However, there are several factors that the "experts" are overlooking that may indicate that McGregor will not only finish the fight but win by Knock Out! The first advantage McGregor has over Mayweather is age. McGregor is 29 years old while Mayweather is 40. McGregor is in the prime of his career and his physical fitness level is at its peak. Over the last decade, Mayweather has put his body through tremendous wear-and-tear and several "retirements." McGregor is widely considered to be one of the best boxing mixed martial artists in the busin

I used a GoPro camera to get this footage. It makes it easier to watch my fingers, if you are trying to learn the tune. Keep your speed very slow as you practice this song. The key to fast playing is slow practice. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dpjEFJX12RY?rel=0?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> If you enjoy this post please consider UPVOTE - COMMENT - FOLLOW @buckydurddle Cheers, BuckyDurddle Good luck, @buckydurddle
