I was wondering if Ireland is involved in the British exit from the eu? Not trying to sound ignorant but Iím just not sure, and yes you do have a beautiful country the movie the Quiet Man made me want to go see it.

Yes we are involved, but it's complicated. The Republic of Ireland is still in the Eu, but Northern Ireland is leaving, and this is causing a big big problem. It's hard explain it, so this video might help explain better than I can.

I'll recommend New Grange, B.S. ing with fishermen on the Moy , Trim Castle tour, and a B and B on the ocean in Galway. Too many tourist at the Moher cliffs for my taste. Good Luck!

Bob, The Republic of Ireland has flourished with EU money. Be stupid for them to get out. IMO. Drive around the Republic of Ireland and all you see is signs that say paid for by the EU. Beautiful new freeways and refurbished tourist attractions and way too many round abouts.

P.S. I hope the Irish still despise the British anyway. They should!

I was watching guys fishing in Ballina and B.S. ing with a guy from Belfast who was waiting for his appointed hour (or Two) in a hole. I think I watched 3 guys fly fishing for salmon for a couple of hours; catching nothing. I still had fun. Went to the local tackle shop and bought some polish made spoons that have never caught anything for me. grin

Some nice pictures there Dirt. Yes, the ridge pool in Ballina. I've fished the other side of the bridge. I done most my salmon fishing in Foxford though, which is not too far away from Ballina. There are quieter places to fish on the river, but hard find.

Do you get the fishing magazine "Hooked on the Moy"? I picked up a copy at I believe Ballina Angling Centre and talked a bunch of fishing with Michael or Paddy? My copy has a bunch of info on the Foxford fishery.

Did you try some poteen?They make some smooth poteen in the west.They use seaweed in the mash to take the fire out.
I fished the Barrow at home years ago with my uncles.Pike ,trout and salmon in the past.Trout were stocked.
Mothers family is from Mayo.

I don't know what poteen is, but I would have hit it hard every night after supervising my nutty mother and hormonal teenage daughter during the daily cat fights. Many pints of Guinness every night seemed to help me relax after a long day of supervision. smile

Poteen is the Irish equivalent to moonshine. There is now a legal Poteen which can be bought off the shelf, but if you really want to experience it, you gotta taste the homemade stuff. Some are made better than others, and some are often watered down. The real stuff would take your breath away lol.

No never seen the magazine. There is a facebook page I believe, ( Not on FB myself) from the tackle shop in Foxford. Tiernan Brothers I think it's called. They have lots of up to date info on how the river is fishing. Lots if nice photo's too. Sort of a tradition for anglers to call in for a photo if they catch anything.
