Moville is a small tourist town, situated on the west bank of Lough Foyle and the eastern edge of the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula, near the northernmost point in Ireland. Across Lough Foyle lies Northern Ireland, with the city of Derry being about 30 km south of Moville. While most of our days are spent in Moville, we do hop on a bus fairly regularly and wander around in a different town, thus the blog name, Somewhere in Ireland.
A few months ago Gillen's Supermarket commissioned a new mural for their side wall where the customers park. The artist is a very multi-talented local man, Brendan Farren, and the mural shows local scenes, Lough Foyle, the lighthouse and Cooley Cross. It a long one and tough getting it in one image due to cars being there off and on all day and night. The last photo is of the end. Previously I showed its predecessor back in February,

these are some of the rocks I see when I looking for sea glass that washes up on shore. I find them very amazing and I enjoy looking at them. The sea glass we used for crafty ideas. I find lots of clear glass and lately I've been finding green, brown, aqua, and blue. Red is very hard to find according to a source on sea glass that I read. Someday though...
I found this little tree like branch growing out of the rock. Very cool and I love the shadow it creates.

abstract looking rocks, very smooth from the water flowing over them
some of the glass that I found. It's like winning a prize :)
is a traditional stone bridge, argued by many to be one of Ireland’s oldest bridges. The bridge itself is thought
to date from the 6th Century and according to legend was built by St
Patrick who stopped here on his way to a nearby ancient site at Cooley. Info courtesy of the Visit Inishowen website
