Great parking (not)

I THINK it was on here that I saw the video of TR10 LLS giving off about their parking ticket(s) for obstructing the footpath - which they had.

I've just come across them this morning - they came into the aire at Bundoran and proceeded to park sideways beside me, taking up 4 parking bays n making a 5th inaccessible. Of course I didn't know who they were till he stepped out n spoke.

I went to get dressed to go n have a chat. When I came out there was the massive RV that had been parked across the way, very nearly in my side window - I kid you not. So HE'S now parked up across the 5 bays n Mr Troll is on the other side.

I have to say the RV driver is amazing - if I hadn't seen him park last night I'd have been even more worried seeing the cab coming in my window

I guess it will depend how busy that aire gets as to how pissed off the French will get. I would be a bit embarrassed if it was me in the RV and it started to fill up. Looks a bit cramped already but no idea how big an aire it is from the photo.

I doubt that the French will worry much.

AFAIK it's in Donegal, IRELAND. 🤣
erneboy, barryd and raynipper like this.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I just saw the word Aire and assumed!! Aire being a french word of course for Area. They should call them something else in Ireland. Worrabout "limistéar" or even "Limistear ag campáil carr"? To be sure yes it is no it isnt.

It is indeed in Donegal, in Buncrana. I think they called it an aire but I may be wrong. It's beside the lovely Amazing Grace gardens one way and a beach the other. Walks to the local castle n they've made quite a bit of Mr Newton who wrote Amazing Grace. Apparently he'd been a foul-mouthed sailor before being caught in a storm that nearly cost the ship until he found his way to safe anchor in Lough Swilly.

Sorry, I said Bundoran in original post - it's Buncrana! I may have been on the road too long!

And I just realised today that I've only a week n a half or so left as I didn't bring a limitless supply of meds.

And when I go back I might be stuck for a while as my home is in a lockdown area. Boohoo!!

Looks a nice place Jean.

As for medicine if you are on lock down will the GP not deliver it? That certainly happened here in the lock down.
