I think this sheep's name is Lisa, at least that is what I was told. She lives behind the place where we live. Occasionally you will hear her baa baa baaing. The first time I heard her, I wasn't really sure that I was hearing a sheep but after asking I was told there was a sheep in our neighborhood. Animals are lovely neighbors and Shari loves wool :)

St Mary of the Visitation Church, Killybegs is the local Catholic Church here in town. I haven't been inside yet but have seen a photo of the interior on their website.
Photo of the interior can be seen here
These other photos are from the church's grounds. It does have a nice little alcove where you can sit.

When moved to Killybegs, we happened to live next store to a school that needed a section of its stone wall repaired. It was interesting to watch it being worked on and it took most of the summer to complete. I was impressed with the workmanship involved and the final finished wall.

About a month ago, this bank's interior was renovated. Out came the counter where you could grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee if you chose to do so. In came more ATM machines plus some booths dedicated to phone banking in the bank. How bizarre is that? More machines and fewer people. When you walk inside, there is a person who offers help if you need it. Way in the back by herself is the foreign currency exchange person. Some older people are not happy and will miss the interactions they had with some other humans. Times they are a changing!

This scene is located right across the street from the Killybegs post office. It looks like someone stopped for a visit and decided to take their bike. Good exercise!! I don't have a bike but I do walk a lot which suits me. If I need to go somewhere other than Killybegs, there is the bus.

|The Abbey Hotel is the bus stop in Donegal Town|
|Donegal Town library|
The library is actually in the right section of the building in the photo.
The library is just one small room but you can inter-library loan books and pick them up here if need be.
The Bank Walk takes about an hour to walk the whole thing and leads back in to town. Lot of trees and during the summer it is nice and cool.
A bunch of fairy houses have sprouted up since our last visit. Also a post box on a tree just in case you have something to mail I guess.
One of Shari's pet peeves--misspellings
