I just spent a few days cycling the Newport to Achill Island Greenway (Co. Mayo). The weather forecast looked good so myself and a friend piled our bikes into the back of a car and headed off. The weather was warm and sunny, and the scenery was truly spectacular. Here are a few photos of the trip.

Check out moonrise over Mweelin. We were sitting outside a county pub having a well-earned pint when a full moon started to rise over the crest of the mountain. It’s was an amazing sight, and one I had never seen before. 

Achill is an island very close to the mainland and accessed by a short bridge, Achill Sound. The tidal streams here can be quite dangerous as the Atlantic rushes in through a narrow channel.

Mullrany strand is a thing of beauty, with nothing on it only a few cows. I’ve no idea what they were doing there, they probably didn’t know themselves.

    Since I have retired from my position as Coordinator of Athletics for a large school district in Wisconsin, I have enjoyed reading all of your books. I change between fiction and non-fiction (WW II). I found that when I started your books it was tough to put them down. Keep up the good work and please let me know when your next book cones out.
