    Not strictly eligible, but the Naval Service currently has a ship tied up next to HMS Belfast and it seems that there might be some sort of rugby match going on somewhere today..

    The ship is open to the public, I believe - pop in, if you're passing.

    More of a (re)start than a stop.

    Many St Patrick's Day parades feature classic cars - this Renault Alpine required the motive power of two sergeants and a superintendent after it had a bit of a failure.

    The young lady bottom right seems highly unimpressed with the sleek lines of the Renault. Clearly a Citroen girl.
    The Viking mid-left is more impressed with it. But then they always liked shiny things …. :teef:

    Lower centre shows clear evidence of an alien spacecraft having landed there. :pint:

    They didn't stay long, but when they left they did say tara.

    And, not too far away, they left an effigy of their rocket.

    You can't go up that one, but you can go up the one in Kilkenny - it was wooden ladders the last time I went up it...

    [​IMG]

    It's about a hundred feet high.


    It seems to have been upgraded to slightly wider treads now.

    Edit :- The ascent can be entertaining...

    Probably not an ideal time to actually stop today.

    Barrows, and another, encircled - what an extraordinary feature.

    What's the story with that then?

    Not far from a famous marine radio coast station at Malin Head. I worked that fellah a few times coming up through the gap.
