Dungarvan

Barça

Barça

Sun. Sept. 3, 2006 – Eoin, his dad Billy, and I popped into Barça (aka the old O’Brien’s pub) on Lismore’s main street for a glass of wine / beer / coffee and it was wonderful. Barça is a Tapas and wine bar in an old school Irish pub that has not changed much in the last 100 years. Delightful. Good wine, good service, fun decor, and good company.

Silver Backed, Tawny Front : Steer 0045

Sun. 09.02.06 – Silver Backed, Tawny Front : Steer #0045 at Carrowmore tomb sites, Co. Sligo, Ireland. #0045 was right next to a dolmen in a ring of standing stones. Lucky #0045. He was nice, too. Young, a bit skittish. But nice.

Another Rainy Saturday and Vodafone’s MMS is Down

Our MSCMM group project is in the last 5 days of “content” collection and Vodafone’s MMS system has been spotty for 2 weeks down and down altogether for whole days at a time. This is bad for a moblogging project that is using MMSs to send photos and text to a server….
((AGH!!!!))
Luckily, MMS was working when Shonagh and I did our whimiscal day road trip, jokingly entitled Around Lough Neagh, on Thursday from Dublin to Northern Ireland that included stops in Tyrone, Derry, and Antrim, and drive by photos of Armagh and Down. It was mostly cloudy with peeps of sun that day.
Today I am off to Connaught in the West to see Roscommon, Leitrim, and hopefully Sligo and Mayo. It is supposed to rain all day today. Tomorrow is Waterford and (hopefully) a bit of Limerick. Early next week is County Cork.
By the time I get on the plane to go to d.construct 2006 next Thursday, I will have travelled to and moblogged all 32 counties on the island or Ireland since June.
Hi, My name is Jenifer, I am from the Los Angeles area and I love moblogging and driving.
(( Friends, could you please go take a screen shot of the front page of Around Ireland and email me the jpg of the front page from your computer’s point of view? Please tell me the browser and OS. I had the CSS working up until the installation of our moblogging script and style switcher script on Thursday. The front page CSS now is all jacked up and I need to see how bad it looks on your machine. The photo and the Google map are supposed to be side by side. Thanks a bunch!))
