Here's some of my own pics to add to the memories:

Lunch stop on the Shannon just east of Lymerick

Image

One of many ruined castles in the area

Image

'prehistoric' beehive house - although mainly reconstructed

Image

Image

Wonderful view - and the landscape's not bad either

Image

the Oratory on the Dingle Peninsular

Image

Image

Drier than my tent, may car and my house!

Image

On the Ring of Kerry

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mountain pass on the ring of Beara

Image

Camping on the Ring of Beara

Image

The cable car to Dursey Island

Image

There's plenty of fish in the sea!

Image

The remains of a copper mine

Image

I got a bit close to the verge it seems

Image

Lunch stop in the rain (again!)

Image

In case you were wondering if you could use unleaded!

Onto the All Ireland Rally, and I spent an enjoyable time (just before Timex started playing up) looking round the Clonmel Transport Museum - not much Citroen related but still interesting, and plenty of Cycle stuff!

The 3 BX's at the Rally

Image

Views from The V

Image

A selection of cars in attendance

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The last night, at St. Margarets, our Lady's Island

Image

The improvised wiper supply and switch to get me home - the 2 wires twisted together are also powering the brake light switch

Image

And this was the speedo light

Image

There are more pics but I have to get them off the other camera still.

I wonder if that C5 (Sinclair) in the museum belonged to a local, was driven and abandoned over there, or was plucked from obscurity this side of the water? :wink: :lol:
