Just in case for the future here it is:

There's nothing there, except passing boats and a jetty. You go right to the lough shore, down the hill, over the cattle grid and round the bend.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I see it now - it's spelt Tiraroe QUEY - is that an Irish word or just a mistake?

I think the spellings may vary from map to map Jean, or there may be an Irish version and an English one.

Tir is, apparently, is Irish for country or land. Roe might be a family name or something of that sort.

Any way Tirraroe, to me, means a lovely quiet barbeque spot at a sheltered overnight berth. Used to go there a lot.

If you are on the other side have you been to Crom, where the recent Blandings, Lord Emsworth series was mostly filmed? It has tea romms etc and is ver quite and pleasant. It also has a jetty where overnight is fine for boats, may do the same for vans in their car park. I don't know.

I did think about Crom when I was in Enniskillen but decided to keep some of the NT properties for another time. Why was that area so popular with the landed gentry?

It was ever thus. I've often thought of the old days when whichever King would bestow such n such land on a new favourite... It wasn't actually his to give!

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

I DID stop over. There are so many islands in the Lough but they're used - in the morning there was ŗ man returned in his boat with 2 dogs. He'd been out to check on his cattle. When he landed he'd an awful job with each dog on a lead n the boat on a rope n trying to step up out the boat at the same time! Turns out there had been another MH previously who'd just prepared their bacon butties - and the spaniel was in n had them before anyone could react! I gather they didn't quite see the funny side 😳 In the evening a young lad turned up to do the same thing only it was pigs he was minding. He told me once they were taking out about 16 very young piglets n one of them ended up in the water. It swam a very good distance to the (wrong) island n they fed it there for a couple of months, on its own poor soul, before taking it to the correct island. Wonder how it integrated after that?! There wasn't anywhere really to walk but it was another very pleasant, lazy day - tho hot, hot, hot !

Today I set to go to a wee Fairy Forest near Cootehill. Very pleasant drive cross country - doing the proper thing n pulling in to let faster traffic past, tho caught up myself with several tractors. Fairy Forest, and its neighbouring riverside parking, completely bunged. I waited 10mins or so to see would anyone leave but it was so obviously a fab family place for river swimming n picnics that there was no chance! So, another destination here at Castleblaney (Muckno Park) which has 2 dedicated MH spaces and a lake n river the kids are having a ball in. I think there are a few walks round here - will have a look when it's cooler. Currently enjoying a cappuccino (really hot, nothing on the top!!) in the shade watching the fun.

1. Beautiful evening last night
2. Today's stop

This is the lovely evening shot that got dropped from the previous post. I'm having quite a bit of trouble with attachments.
