Eco village

Rachel had a good trip to the Eco Village at Cloughjordan in County Tipperary yesterday with some of the people from the Tralee Transition Towns group. They have a great setup there with hot water provided by a central system of solar panels ( just a few of them are shown in the picture ) and heat via a wood pellet burner. They also have allotments, cows and pigs - very inspiring!

Saturday night was at Foleys in Inch for Colins birthday party: great atmosphere and food with music from Colin, Maurice and friends. I also bumped into loads of people I hadn't seen in a while so it was nice to catch up. I even managed to remember a couple of websites worth looking at for Maurice's photography and Marks Gallery in Glenflesk.

After a few windy days ( some good windsurfing! ) the calm, fine weather is due to return this week hopefully it will finish ripening some of the strawberries!
