Good view of Wexford at least.


#1142

What GAA club covers Dunmore East ?


#1143

Gaultier GFC, and both Passage and Ballygunner would have the rights for the hurlers.


#1144

I forgot the charging thing. Sorry.

2016 Bathing Water report.

Dunmore East retains its 2 (two) blue flags.

By contrast the north Fingal coast and Galway Bay appear to be cesspits.


#1146

You’d want your head examined to swim in the Irish Sea.


#1147

Apart from East Wexford and the North Wexford Riviera :clap:


#1148

Waterford has some wonderfully named GAA clubs, but then you’d expect that cosmopolitan influence in the sunny south-east.

I’m told the “fashion derby” when Gaultier take on Modeligo is always one to watch - apparently it attracts spectators from the nearby Model county of Wexford, and Kilkenny people have even been known to take a catwalk up to the venue when the teams clash - that’s clash in terms of trying to win the match, as opposed to a clash of colours, which would be very inappropriate in a fashion derby match.

Portmarnock Beach is an Oasis of quality. Excellent water.


#1150

So is the Burrow beach.

Can anyone recommend a half daycent place to eat along the M6 near enough to Ballinasloe? Pub grub would be grand, nothing too swanky.


#1153

There’s a pub in Tarbert called “The Swanky”.
It’s not Swanky


#1154

I’ll put that in my notebook for when I’m planning my north Kerry trip.


#1155

You could try one of the three Supermacs in Ballinasloe?


#1156

Is the pub down by the ferry still going ?? Tarbert isn’t very glamorous .


#1157

Matty

Glin is a lot nicer and the right side of the border .

Finucane’s Bar in Ballylongford is a treasure .


#1158

That’s the swanky I’d say
