road tradegy

Unfortunately, two male teenagers lost their lives early Saturday morning, 3:30am.  Three others were taken to hospital and are expected to recover.  This weekend is a bank holiday weekend (3 day weekend) and the Gardai have been telling drivers on social media and over the radio to be careful when driving. The car had hit a wall and then a tree.   Such a tragedy.

drilling holes

Saw the workers drilling holes in the building.  One worker had a sweatshirt on that says Surefill Insulation so I looked them up.  Their facebook page states:
Surefill Ltd is a family business, established in 2000. We install bonded bead cavity wall and loft insulation to new build and existing private and commercial dwellings.
So I guess they were going to install some insulation.  I never heard or seen this before but found it interesting.

The painting is the brainchild of Sligo Tidy Towns Committee, who commissioned Nik Purdy to paint W.B. Yeats, and what a breath of fresh air it brings to the town.

pole painter

This Carndonagh worker was applying a new layer of paint on the pole.  The pole is located at the diamond in the center of town.  As for the flag, I have no idea what it represents.  I'll have to ask next time I'm there,

We take the bus and our backpacks once a month to go to Lidl and Aldi to pick up items that we can't get locally.  It's about an hour bus ride from Moville.

They worked on the chimney all day.  These terraced houses are vacant, maybe someone bought them.

cows on the run

Heading home on the bus from Buncrana, we came upon some loose cows. 

here the bus driver used his bus to help round up the cows.  It worked and they headed down the road that is on the right (where the silver car is).  When we passed the guy who was the owner, he gave the bus driver a thumbs up.
