addition

looks like an addition is being constructed on this home.  The work seems to be stalled at this time, no workers or evidence of tenants.



obviously a new gate will be needed


and a pile of turf to be used

O'Donnell Building

built in 1909 and located on main street.  Someone has bought the building and I wonder what it will become.  I couldn't find any info on it so I have no idea what it was before it became vacant.

St. Crone's

Church of Ireland, Templecrone,  Dungloe, Co. Donegal
Originally built in 1760 to replace the one in ruins for 20 years at Templecrone.  The minister (John Major) argued that this site by the new road and bridge was more convenient for his parishioners.  The present structure dates from 1844.

Info courtesy of the Dungloe Heritage Trail brochure.

house by the lake

on our walk last week to Dungloe Lake, we saw this house in the distance and decided that would be our destination.  It took about 45 minutes to get there.  The hills around there are very rocky so the rocks that we saw around the house looked like they were there naturally and maybe bleached.  I could be wrong but it was interesting to see regardless.  We didn't see any people so we don't know if the house was finished or inhabited.

you can see the house in the distance, to the right and rear of the sign

saturday critters

saw all these critters on a walk yesterday morning.  It was nice and quiet, we saw only four people which we passed and said hi.  We did see a few people talking and they were doing the social distance thing. 

this sheep had its own ball but he didn't want to play :)


this old lion didn't want to play ball either :)


so you're leaving, huh?  it's about time :)

signs

a notice in a chemist store informing patrons of the new protocol.  They had taped numbers on the floor three meters between each one.  As one person proceeded, the next one would move up.  A woman would assist you by taking your presciption and your phone number.  They would text you when it was ready.
Be smart, pay attention and hopefully stay healthy!


a notice on a school bus giving advice for schools

unoccupied

on a walk a few weeks ago, I came across these unoccupied houses.  My guess it that the work was never finished on them.  It's a shame because there are lots of families who are in need of a place to call home.
