gate house

while walking, we passed this rather cute wee house surrounded by trees. 

This is the only info I could find on the Gate House in Mountcharles

Not visible in this shot because of foliage, but this house has an extremely steeply pitched roof; rare and perhaps the work of a distinguished architect of Edwardian times; this is a matter for research and a second picture to be taken in winter when a better view exists.

saturday critters

these two greeted us as we strolled by on our walk in Mountcharles this past Monday

in another part of town, we saw these wee sheep with their mother.  She wasn't interested in posing. :)

Three, 200 foot blades for the Oweninny wind farm development in north Mayo will be transported over road, from Killybegs in Donegal through Ballina and Crossmolina.   They transport the blades late at night when the road has less traffic.
