Oileáin Reprint

Oileáin is about to undergo a substantial (second) reprint which means two things : First it means that Oileáin a Dó will be outperforming Oileáin a hAon , which was never expected. Perhaps its some sort of offshoot of the Covid ? Second, because its a large enough reprint, 1,000 copies, publisher ...

Amphidromic Points

Amphidromic Points, as i am sure we all know well, are points on the surface of the earth palpated by the moon (that's close enough I hope). At an Amphidromic Point there will be zero up and down tidal range (caused by the moon), but at which the time at which the side to side tidal movement changes...

Oileáin

Brexit is coming so I bought in a heap of Oileáins to save me registering and form filling and generally being messed about by the big event (I doubt that tariffs will be the big issue?). Rumours reaching me that Oileáin is out of print and generally unavailable are untrue. The printer is Polish the...

Re: High Tides in Venice

you seem to be saying that the entire operation just gets lower - the LWs get lower and so do the HWs ???????

Re: Mukluks

This Thermarest thing that makes a chair out of your mattress might be thrown in or form its own separate "sale" in same price range and Ts&Cs. Its the more complex kind where the mattress lives in it, a chair by day and a bed by night. I prefer the simpler type myself ............ DWalsh O87 254 6O54

Mukluks

Otherwise, essentially, fur lined wellies. The "must have" accessory for anyone with northbound ambitions for post-Covid. Never rallied or raced, used only by one careful owner on a couple of trips. Need only a new home, unless someone is prepared to pay, in which case a maximum price of one bottle ...

Beeves Rock now in Oileain

Oileáin has received its 587th island thanks to WISKA members Brian, Ruth and Sinéad who guided me safely there from Crovraghan Pier on last Saturday a beautiful sunny day. In passing we also tidied up some information about Coney, Trummer, Doon and the mighty Canon friary. A great day out and thank...
