No Unauthorised Use

While the whelk catch is being loaded in Wicklow Harbour the gulls get to indulge in a veritable feast from the top crates in each pile.  Unauthorised?  Try telling that to the gulls!

Below, the gull on the left keeps watch as his friend tucks in!

The Sheer Sense Of Space

Passing through the Sally Gap, County Wicklow, you can't help but be captivated by the quiet and the sheer sense of space of it all.

Nightfall over farmland in my little neck of the woods - that's Blainroe, County Wicklow.

A Nice Vintage

The vintage car show, held outside Wicklow's Historic Gaol last Sunday, wasn't as interesting as previous years but this was nice  - a 1969 911T.

Under Construction

This is Greystones Harbour which was under redevelopment over the last couple of years until
the developers ran into some difficulty with the funding, and so all work has come to a halt with the harbour area now surrounded by  builders's hoarding. The residents of Greystones are more than a little peeved at this situation and many meetings and protests continue to be held to try to, at least, have the hoarding removed and allow reasonable access to the harbour area.  Quite simply, the people want their harbour back!

It's Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and today's theme is Under ConstructionClick here to view thumbnails for all participants

Lough Tay

The scenic and dark Lough Tay set between the mountains of Luggala and Djouce is a vista which we have pictured several times but one which is always a delight to return to. The startlingly white sand of the beach which forms the northern coastline marks one of the boundaries of the Luggala Estate belonging to the Guinness family.

Cloghogue Valley
