Our roving reporter came across this sight the other day. The building
on the right was formerly a bar and it has been unused for quite a
while. In its heyday the front of the building was painted in the
most glaring blue and later red paint - the sort of shades frequently
used in town to attract thirsty customers.
Some kindly person has scraped all this horrid decoration off and left a better-looking but slightly worn frontage. We hope
that the rather nice original look of this building will be restored in time.
Unless of course someone has thought of an even worse coat of paint!
Ships on Lough Foyle
Visiting cruise ships have been rather scarce this year, but on the left
is one that parked outside Moville on the 26th of August.
She is called 'Crystal Symphony' and can accommodate nearly one
thousand, five hundred passengers and crew. As there are eight decks and
the ship is 238 metres long, over-crowded corridors shouldn't be too
much of a problem.
The wild goats of Benevenagh
Friends of our feral friends on the right will be pleased to hear that
all is well with the herd of wild goats roaming the heights of
There seem to be plenty of young ones and the adults look healthy
and prosperous. Recently our editor - glued to his binoculars -
counted as many as sixty animals in the herd.
Long may they roam.
