St Patricks Balla Co Mayo


Like a lot of buildings in Ireland and around the world they are a part of architectural history,… they do not build them like this anymore

I might go back and take one to go with the sketch in the above link ..

A little bit of Ireland

Cannon's bar

Cannon's pub Castlebar

Cannon's pub Castlebar 1

As the heading says a little bit of Ireland, an old style pub which unfortunately is not open any more, but is kept as if it is and probably as good as many which are open, its always lit and well painted and I would pass it on many occasions during any week .

Below is a few links about pub itself

Killary Fjord 3

Was over working for the Killary Cruise and as you can see, not the best weather but it has it’s good days as well

I have attached a gallery to show what it can look like, some of these were taken early on a Sunday morning on the 20th June 2010 while climbing Mweelrea, the highest mountain in Connaught at 814meters

Irish Roots, Epals and County MayoMweelrea Mountain Walk

If you’re around the area try the cruise and if Alex or Gordan are working they may tell you about my first time working on the boat while it was moored and me going green with sea sickness even though it was going no place, O ya try the apple tart and cream.

A Little bit of America in Westport

Ireland’s Uncle Sams

A little bit of USA in Westport Co Mayo located on Mill Street and coffee and cheesecake are not bad either, even though Wikipedia says coffee originated in Ethiopia, History of coffee – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and cheesecake  originated in ancient Greece,  The History of Cheesecake and Cream Cheese but that is only a minor detail.
