the name reminds me of when my dad took me to Louie the barber to get my haircut. Even if we were the only two people in his shop, he would still ask, OK, who’s next even though my dad didn't need his hair cut. :)
has some of the highest sea cliffs on the island of Ireland. Although less famous than the Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare, Slieve League's cliffs reach almost three times higher. You can read more about it here.
opened Nov 2015 next to Aldi and not far from the town centre. I like all the glass on this one side but haven't been or seen the inside. McCabe Architects website has construction, night and inside photos that really show off this building I do like this building, it's very different.
Saturday the 11th was the Streetfest in Killybegs. It rained but the folks showed up to watch and cheer the tug of war competitors down at the pier. There were a few teams that competed and it was fun to watch. I attached a video (46 sec) below if you are interested.

In 2016 a special plaque had been added to remember all those who have been lost at sea. The plaque had been commissioned alongside the existing memorial in the village playground.
another memorial can be found at Saint Mary's church which is located nearby. The little bronze plate on the lower part of the memorial states: this plaque was placed in this Garden of Remembrance during the restoration of our church 2012.
is located in Donegal Town. In the early 17th century, four Franciscan friars, fearing that the arrival of the English meant the end of Celtic culture, chronicled the whole of known Celtic history and mythology. Starting 40 years before the biblical flood through AD 1618, The Annals of the Four Masters is one of the most important sources of early Irish history. The obelisk (1937), in The Diamond, commemorates the work; copies are displayed in the National Library in Dublin.
on our way to Donegal Town this past Tuesday morning. The road construction has been going on for months, they're widening the road and expanding other parts of it and expect to be finished before winter arrives. Looking at the clouds you'd think it was going to rain, it didn't.
up in the hills on Roshine Road. Looking down on the town you see St. Mary of the Visitation Church. Further back and to the right of the church, you can see the tower of the Coastguard Station where we call home.
