Dungloe

We spent Friday in Dungloe which is an hour drive north from Killybegs.  These are some photos I took while we were walking on main street.  Some of the businesses had window displays, they were nice to see.

the veggie stand

in Donegal Town.  Went by it yeserday and they had wreaths for sale.   Lots of people walk through this area to get to the centre of town so maybe they'll sell lots of them.

wall collapse

on the side of the coastguard building we had a small building which wasn't used for anything.  I think it was a small place to park a car many years ago.  With the strong gusty winds we had during the week, the outside wall blew down.  Our neighbor parks his car in the space you see on the left.  Luckily it wasn't damaged so the other day he started to lower the remaining wall so it wouldn't be a problem.  Next month, he will rent a dumpster (skip) to have the cement blocks hauled away.


this is the front, trees had been growing inside for years.  It had a door, an opening for a window and no roof.  Not very sturdy for strong winds.  So the collapse was the loud noise we heard on Sunday night.  It's rather interesting, nobody really paid attention to the building.

Boathouse Restaurant

 is now opened.  The owners are the same people who run the Seafood Shack down at the pier.  I first showed this building when they started working on it back in the beginning of May.  They did a great job and it looks fantastic.  Hopefully it will be as popular as the Seafood Shack.

saturday critters

I bought a book last week at the charity shop and this was a card inside.  The person who wrote on the back of it, thanked the recipient for doing her a favor.  I have to admit, the dog is kind of funny but I'm sure it is a special companion for someone.
