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: 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 ............ DWa...

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 o...

Beeves Rock now in Oileain

In passing we also tidied up some information about Coney, Trummer, Doon and the mighty Canon friary. A great day out and thank...

Re: Ghost Ships

A synopsis ...... MV Alta is neither the first, the last, nor even (by a country mile) the most interesting ghost ship to land up on the Irish coast, or maybe any coast. That accolade surely belongs to the Zorro Zaurre, a Spanish fishing vessel that was swamped, abandoned awash, and thought to have ...

Ghost Ships

M.V. Alta has been splashed all over the newspapers as a remarkable "ghost ship" story but dedicated followers of Oileáin know only too well its in the halfpenny place beside the story from Roancarrigbeg on the Beara peninsula. Head for "www.oileain.org" and open "Oileáin&qu...
