Ireland v Australia–November 26th 2016

It was the last game in the 2016 Autumn Internationals. Oh and yeah, Ireland bet the Aussies!

Is that high?  I think that’s high, is it high???

Anyway, that’s a few photos from todays game, a game which meant that Ireland beat South Africa, New Zealand and Australia in 2016!  I think that qualifies as a good year for Ireland.

The 4 of Us at BAG

The 4 of Us… What can you say about them?  Well, they are Irish music legends. Anything else? Nope, there’s no need to!

So, when these guys are playing a tiny intimate gig 10 miles from your home, it’d be rude not to go along. So I did and off to BAG in Ballymore I went!

Wild Atlantic Way…

I headed to Strandhill in Sligo last week for a night out. It’s a beautiful part of the world, a tad chilly and wet in November, but it’s Ireland after all!

I Went To The Beach… In October!

I don’t normally take photos of my surroundings… I normally only really take shots of motorsports and music gigs, a strange combination, but how and ever.

I finished up a job today in Bray and afterwards, rather than going home straight away, I went for a walk on the beach. It was bloody chilly, but sound of the sea and the smell of the salt in the air made it worth while.

I didn’t have my regular camera with me, so I had to use the mobile phone, but I think the shots came out ok.
