Bank of Ireland

closed on Oct 8th in Dungloe along with 88 other branches around the country.  Now if you need access to the bank services, the bank has a contract with An Post to cover those services.  They even took the ATM machine out which people were not happy about.  There are a few machines in stores that people can access.  Just more aggravation for people.  I wonder what will now become of this empty building.

Derrybeg Chapel

On the 15th August 1880 tragedy struck the parish of Gweedore, while parish priest Father James McFadden said Mass in a packed St Mary’s Chapel in Derrybeg. This is known in Gweedore as the great flood, while the Irish Times would describe the event as the Gweedore catastrophe.

Ostan Ghaoth Dobhair (Gweedore Hotel) is to be re-developed as a leisure and activity complex along with a number of “own-key luxury self-catering apartments”. A bar and restaurant will also be developed on the site.

Hulk is trying to keep the petrol prices down but he's not succeeding. 


I bet there were a few people who were not happy if their car got locked in.

confined to cages to create a wall.  There is a path to the right of this that leads back to a small playground.

walking

to the library.  A tight fit for this truck coming down the road, it was the only vehicle we saw.  I was surprised to see it but maybe he was lost.  A view of Mt. Errigal.
