bow, bow,
down dog
enough of that
==============
back to the museum

come and see the tricolour flown on the kerlogue when she was shot up by the raf

the flag is now rather old , and the bullet holes don't help - they are real

at the time, our neighbours (initially) denied that they did the damage

but then as her cargo of coal was unloaded, there were shell fragments - with "made in birmingham"

we had a discussion as to whether the flag should be consigned to a closed cabinet or allowed to be on a flag pole
for now, its on the open, still standing tall

Yes, saw Nationwide, the Museum looks fantastic, what a job was done on the Church, great credit due to all concerned in it's renovation, on my "to do list", can't wait to see the models again after so many years.

Thank you both,
I have just watched it. Hats off to RTE that is a great production. The trip around the bay was thrilling - (I have never been on a small boat and have lived at the sea all my life) I took a note of that website and will see if a few friends will join me for a trip.

The Maritime Museum is just wonderful. Such an achievement for a dedicated band of people to renovate the church and make a world class museum. I felt a burst of pride to see what the team have done I can only imagine their pride. Well done to all concerned it can not have been an easy road.

An Annual outing :D now there's an idea, Enviro could sort the bus, he could drive us, we could advertise it as a special tour and charge anyone who wasn't a member, that way we could make a wedge of money to cover our expenses and buy us our refresments :D coffee, tea and chocolate Kimberlys, and maybe a pint or three :D :D and 99's at Teddy's when we get back :D :D
