G4S security

founded in 1968, they are one of Ireland’s longest established security solutions companies.

We are going to be moving to Dungloe this week which is an hour NW from Killybegs.  The landlord and letting agent who oversees our place haven't been getting along and there are some issues with our current residence that are not being addressed.  So off we go and am looking forward to a new town.  I'll see you when we get access again to the internet.  Have a great week!

I've never seen a notice stating the escape hatch is on the roof.

balancing act

that is a pretty good load this guy was carrying.  Three small crates of fruit or veggies and a big bag of Irish carrots on his shoulders.  Definitely not for me, I have a rolling backpack and that works fine for the big stuff.

was very bad yesterday morning.  This is what it looked like at 9:30, as we waited for the bus.  Couldn't even see the water from across the road.

electric substation

down on the harbour's pier.  It was finished last month and took almost a year.  Now there are outlets for the ships to plug in and recharge their batteries or just get power.
The timeline relates to when I took the photos so it is an estimate of when the construction was completed.

saturday critters

saw this little guy one day when I was walking, I stopped to say hello and take his photo.  He wanted to play but I'm glad he was safe from the street.

A local business, Homestore + More, have a radio ad slogan that goes, “When they're gone, they're gone.  I thought of that when I passed this window.
