Best of luck Strum. I can't wait to see all the new photos of Dun Laoghaire Pier/Beach/Town that I reckon you'll be taken now that you're getting closer to the Metropolis.

Thanks Misti and Joe. :cool:


I was out for a wander with the Dogs and headed over to Sally Glen.

GLEANN NA SALAI (with a Fada on the I, cant do it on this crap pc)

Glen of the Willows. :cool:



I'm trying to find a pic of a Weeping Sally Willow, not common, and not what are coming up in search results.

There is one though, still there opposite the house I grew up in. (photo shoot ahead) :D
Great times climbing over the wall and having sessions under the Willow Tree in full Leaf.
It must have looked like it was on fire sometimes. :mrgreen:

Chiro, Willow Tree top of Mulgrave Tce on the right? Or were you even allowed up there haha? :D

You're right there Denis, Crab Apples and Bellyaches, BUT, the ones behind Royal Tce were the Gems of Orchards,
Apples, Pears, Berries AND Plums!
Spoilt for choice we were! ;-) ;-) :razz:



Chiro, same thing happened to us, got caught and told to call to the front door and she would fill up our Ganzies,
but THAT was no fun now was it? :mrgreen: :D :D

You were spoilt alright Strum and yer right about knocking at the door,there was no adventure in that.Unless of course you knocked at the door after tying black thread on the door knocker and watching the reaction from across the road. :roll:
