Memory Monday – This Time Last Year

This photo was taken just over a year ago – on the 3rd December. Dublin was at a standstill thanks to heavy snows. This particular corner we watched as cars and trucks came down from the slightly higher bridge and slid straight into the bollards – generally at slow speed. Cyclists gave up, pedestrians were […]

Farewell Ireland

After 6 years in Ireland I’ve decided that the weather here just isn’t up to the advertised standard. So I’m headed off to Scotland, where I’m told that they have good, proper to-the-bones cold.

The speech that followed set the perfect tone and was, quite frankly, a masterpiece. The tone was of mutual admiration, understanding […]

Useful Links for Snow in Ireland
