The snow continues in Ireland. We had more snow fall last night and as a result our airport is closed – again. The police are telling people not to travel, the schools are closed for nearly a week and we are starting to run low on water supplies, not to mention salt and grit. You would imagine we had no warning about this weather wouldn’t you? Especially since a milder version of it happened last year, and the met office warned us before the first snow hit. Go figure!

How cool is this building in Galway. When digging the foundations for it they discovered the ruins of a old Celtic building. So what did they do? What you see above, they incorporated the ruins into the design of the building. They found the ruins of a viking town when building in Dublin city, and what did they do? Gave some archaeologists a few months to excavate what they could, then dug it all up and cemented over it. Dont worry about our history, or the roots of our culture. A few hundred fancy apartments for bankers was more important. Bah!!
