South Coast - Wexford to Clonakilty
16th July 2012
Hook Head Lighthouse (Co Wexford) - one of the oldest working lighthouses in Europe. Location here.
I have been here before many moons ago. (On my '79 Triumph)
Don't go backwards!
When you look closely at the rocks here, you realise that they are completely imbedded
with fossils of plants and tiny creatures.
And to think these critters were alive only a few millions years ago!
Loftus Hall - Long range shot as it seemed to be closed,
famous for the hole in the roof where the Devil went through.
This was the busy (note car coming) L4050 road 'Ring of Hook'.
Byrne's (relative?) Pub/shop at Ballyhack Harbour.
Ferry from Ballyhack to Passage East Ferry Waterford.
Off to Waterford...by hopping ferry. The only one I used - just for the experience of it.
Looking out to sea from Co Waterford.
Ballylane East Location
Stopping to admire the view.
The busy road (R675) I just rode on! Location
Round tower and ecclesiastical ruins, Ardmore, County Waterford. Location.
Ruins of the Cathedral and oratory dating from the 13th and 8th centuries.
One of the two Ogham stones that have been moved into the ruins for protection..
Looking towards Ardmore beach.
Haven't yet managed to work out where this beach is?
The few minutes I was parked up was enough to get covered in fine sand.
(And it stayed there until after I got home).
Stopped at Kinsale Co Cork to visit...
The Old Head of Kinsale Location here
Tower at Old Head Kinsale Location here
Over looking the coast where the Lusitania was sunk by a German U boat.
Interesting ship moored out there.
Lets take a closer look, Ok so it's the Peacock Class LE Orla (P41) Irish Navy.
Old Head of Kinsale - as far as you can get.. the rest is a golf course. Location
