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.

glenfield and kennedy
Thomas Kennedy Senior was the founder of Glenfield and Kennedy and inventor of the world's first water meter. Pumps, water-main cleaners, water-level indicators, basically anything to do with water this company was at the forefront.There are a few of these hydrants around town. The cast of a lion head is an interesting addition to the hydrant.
