Creagh TB Hospital in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo. It is a desolated place where many suffered and died from the tuberculous disease in the 1940/50's.  It now stands as a monument of sickness and death as the earth slowly takes back the decaying ruins.

being safe

"Paddy the Cope" Gallagher pictured beside The Cope supermarket. His somewhat unusual middle name 'The Cope' refers to his family connection to The Cope agricultural cooperative which operates in The Rosses area of Donegal. The name comes from the inability of one of the founder shareholders to say Co-Op - as he could pronounce Cope, the name The Cope was adopted.

Today we enter phase 1 which means
-a return to work for outdoor workers in areas such as construction, gardeners
-retailers who primarily operate outdoors such as garden centres, hardware stores and farmers markets will be allowed to reopen.
-allowed to exercise with others in small groups of up to four people while having no contact
still required is social distancing, 5km limit from home for exercise and if you don't need to be out then stay in.  There are 5 phases with about 3 weeks between each one.  Hopefully we will meet all the guidelines.

dungloe river sights

For the last six weeks we weren’t allowed to be more than 2km away from our home for exercise purposes.  A few days ago the restriction was updated to 5km.  Also, people 70 and older were allowed outside after cocooning for the same period.  We celebrated by taking a longer walk. :)

Saw this sign on the River Walk the other day when I was walking.  I looked up the group and found this info.
