    Saw one today in the mountains. Was cutting through the heather and gorse and it flew out. Amazing when you stop for a few minutes and have a listen all the crittur sounds you hear.

    Had a slightly nervous moment off Military road walking by 5 lads about 17ish old mucking around with a dirt bike with their boy racer type car nearby. One of them shadow boxing and attempting a roundhouse (poorly executed). Bit of a weird moment as no one saying anything. Me looking at them, them looking at me, me again lookin at them, then roundhouse guy says howya and I give a nod with a "lads" and they all go "howya doing"
    Think roundhouse guy was admonished as heard one say something about being intimidating.

    Anyway, survived, probably more danger in twisting an ankle in the cross country.

        ha, i completely missed the point that she herself is a senator. oh yeah she is a fuckwit. Man there's such value in not having a tv and having no means of accessing all this type of stuff like politician interviews. I saw a tiktok with simon harris the other day and that was the first time I've ever heard him speak. I can only imagine what someone like alan kelly sounds like as he post-dates chucking the tv.

          Was up hellfire today. What a place! Never seen it before. The hellfire club itself is properly eery and its pretty amazing that you can go in around it. The surroundings are really quite magical. Followed the trail through the hills then over to Carty's Castle, which turns out to be neither a castle nor belonging to a Carty, but an old abandoned hunting lodge, mainly torn down about a hundred years ago. Notable, for those of you who don't know, for its real name being named after the niece of the Earl of Ely - her name being Dolly, and then Mount appended for its mountain-based status, to give the name of the lodge as Dollymount. I was guessing that was the reason for the name Dollymount the area in Dublin, but google suggests now that thats named after a whole other house called Dollymount that existed in Dublin at the same time in the area now called Dollymount. The city seems to have been littered with buildings named after Dollys at a particular point in time.

            Shinners spend feck all on anything ever, they just have some very motivated people with decent social media skills. Whether their politics and message are anathema to people is a separate thing, their strategy,effort and delivery are pretty impressive.
            There is an entire snake oil industry with social media and PR, big Venn diagram overlap with the "mental health grifters" someone nailed before. These fuckers are more of a root cause of mental health issues from what I can see.

                  The fact it happened in December and was previously reported on doesn't seem to help him.

                    Have they not admitted this week that some of their social media accounts are run by, ahem, "party supporters" in Serbia?

                        It's a seemingly small story being blown up but the optics of it are really bad imo.

                          As much as I think its a total non story and its being completely blown out of all proportion way bigger than it should be, he is the guy telling us exactly what we should and should not be doing during restrictions and he himself cannot stick to them. That's why it looks so bad.

                          Personally, I've stopped sticking to restrictions 100% for a few weeks now. I was in Glendalough for a hike on Paddys day and again yesterday. Alone. Made my lunch at home, drove there with no stop, hiked and drove straight home. And I dont see the harm I was doing. The fact I'm not allowed do that with current restrictions in place but I can be surrounded by people in a shop doesnt make any sense.

                          I can see why people are so fed up when stories like that boxing club come out.

                            Isn't it mad that that's the story that's doing on rounds as the main story of the day on the day when Leo has had to leave his house, despite it being under armed guard, because of a threat to his life.

                              I'd imagine there's something in that that allows the real cost to be obscured.

                                Got a visit from the Gardai to my home the day after Paddys Day about 'Pats Pub". Said they'd had a few complaints. Shebeen isn't actually at my house. Told them they could have a look around. Lads did so thoroughly. Said to them when leaving they'd be better off spending a bit of time up in Glendalough if they were looking to hand out a few fines. Should add shebeen is now decommissioned.

                                  I actually got stopped at a checkpoint, the one on the N11 before the Bray exit and then just as I parked the car in Glendalough a Garda jeep pulled up.

                                  Explained to both that I had my lunch and all, didnt stop and would be hiking alone and going home. Told them the toll it's taken on me mentally when before I was a generally positive person and I needed an outlet. Both of them wished me well and told me to mind myself.

                                  Its about making decisions that are the best for you while staying safe.

                                    Now that you mention the shebeen has been stopped, do you want to tell us about it?

                                    What was the set up? Did you make much money? Where did you source the booze from? How much was a pint? Or anything else in general that was different from your normal pub.

                                              Mrs Lao Lao finally cracked this week.

                                              On Wednesday, she said 'How would you fell about going west for the long weekend?' which was met with a strange look from me but no comment.

                                              On Thursday, she mentioned it again and I said I wasn't sure if it was a great idea as we'd have a three and a half hour drive to get through with God only knows how many checkpoints.

                                              On Friday morning, she announced she was going regardless if I was or not.

                                              So, I got home from work Friday at about 7, had a quick bite to eat, packed a bag and we were on the road at 8pm. We weren't stopped at one single checkpoint. Roads were very quiet and we made it down in record time of 3 hours and 12 minutes, having not stopped once en route.

                                              Yesterday, we headed out for a walk of about 6km and met one person, a guy from Cellbridge who has a holiday home down here who has been here with his wife since before Christmas. He was doing a bit of work outside his house and was chomping at the bit to talk to us.

                                              Today, we did a walk of just over 7km, over the headland, Gorteen beach, Dogs Bay, over another headland to a small cove for a quick swim and back again and we came in contact with nobody.

                                              I was very weary of coming down but I'm delighted we did. The break, albeit only for a couple of days, was badly needed.

                                              That said, we still have to get home tomorrow so will probably be stopped/fined but it'll still be worth it.

                                                What was the set up? Did you make much money? Where did you source the booze from? How much was a pint? Or anything else in general that was different from your normal pub.
                                                Can't disclose location but it was in a converted horse stable in deepest darkest Wicklow, 6km off a "main road", needed a code to open the gates into the property.

                                                Not much difference from a pub to be honest.2 taps, Guinness and coors for the girls, 2 optics.. gin or whiskey, small fridge for bottles, cans and mixers, 2 large couches with tables and small standard bar L shaped bar that could fit 4 high stools at it.small pool table, dartboard and tv with sky, even had a poker table but was seldom used. fitted 12 people comfortably.

                                                Wasn't setup to make money, no till. 3 pints for a tenner. Also an honour system so money was put in a jar at the door on your way out. I used to work in bars and hotels in my youth so had plenty of contacts to source kegs. I had all the equipment as I also used to setup bars for events.

                                                Honestly just got too busy with people looking to come, even on a school night, was initially only setup for friends and close friends, but just took off, had to employ a barman at one stage. I'm still WFH full time and have a little lad under 1. Also a friend who really should have know better, brought 2 undesirables from SP's neck of the woods without pre clearance. Knew they were bad news straight away. Didn't make a big deal at the time and let them drink away.

                                                Removed everything the following day. Had to cancel Cheltenham pints...some very disappointed people. Break in the following week, few quid to fix the gates unfortunately, then a visit from the Gardai.

                                                  Think it's only a hundred quid fine if you're stopped is it? Youd drop more on a Wednesday wine

                                                    So, I got home from work Friday at about 7, had a quick bite to eat, packed a bag and we were on the road at 8pm. We weren't stopped at one single checkpoint. Roads were very quiet and we made it down in record time of 3 hours and 12 minutes, having not stopped once en route.

                                                    Yesterday, we headed out for a walk of about 6km and met one person, a guy from Cellbridge who has a holiday home down here who has been here with his wife since before Christmas. He was doing a bit of work outside his house and was chomping at the bit to talk to us.

                                                    Today, we did a walk of just over 7km, over the headland, Gorteen beach, Dogs Bay, over another headland to a small cove for a quick swim and back again and we came in contact with nobody.

                                                    I was very weary of coming down but I'm delighted we did. The break, albeit only for a couple of days, was badly needed.

                                                    That said, we still have to get home tomorrow so will probably be stopped/fined but it'll still be worth it.

                                                      BBV pretty hypocritical. Including me. I crept outside the 5k limit today. If everyone did it , the 6k zone be a death trap.

Our issue is the reliance on buses or taxis, so its not fair on other people, while ye guys have cars to keep you safe and isolated.

                                                            I must admit I did have a laugh at your stay at home shtick on Twitter and then a few tweets later you're in a taxi to a park.

                                                            I don't think there are too many left who are 100% sticking to rules and regulations. From someone like solskjaer stopping just outside his 5k, to me going for a hike alone in glendalough to the more extreme example of Pat operating a shebeen.

                                                            It's been a long slog at this stage.

                                                                Nah, nothing recent or intense tbf. I just remember a tweet where you said something like 'just stay at home it's simple really' or something to that effect. I cant be arsed to go back through your tweets cos I dont actually care. But maybe a day or 2 later you were on getting a taxi to a park cos it was within your 5k.

                                                                Nothing major obvs, just gave me a laugh about how people justify their own little things to themselves.

Think it would be safer to spend an hour with a prostitute, over 15 minutes in a taxi, but either way I would advise against broadcasting the choice on twitter.

There is a lot of bees out and about in the garden today. In the tree with the blossoms, they are smaller and look more honeybees whereas in the heather directly below, they are much bigger and look like bumble bees. Is this normal or have I happened upon a breakthrough discovery?
                                                                                                                Just your standard spring time biodiversity but I’m still going to ramble on about the fascinating details...

                                                                                                                The bumblebees that you see now are mostly queen bumblebees, out of hibernation, setting about building a new nest/colony. They’re much bigger than the standard worker bumblebees you’ll see later once the nests expand and get well established.

                                                                                                                If they are honeybees in the tree, they’re likely all on the tree and not on heather or anything else. The scout honeybees go out early in the day and return to the hive with samples of pollen or nectar from different sources. They share their finds and advertise them to the other workers by dancing. Through a pretty democratic process most of the workforce will end up working on the best source based on estimating the relative efforts and relative rewards.

                                                                                                                We had a load of honeybees in our pear tree two or three days ago. No sign of them yesterday though - probably because of the field of oilseed rape that has started to bloom nearby offering better rewards.

                                                                                                                Of course, there are plenty of hover flies and solitary bees and so on that get mistaken for honeybees too.

                                                                                                                tl;dr sounds great. Enjoy the buzz.

                                                                                                                          I picked up between the lines from the Ruby RTE Interview that Rachel isn't in it for the long haul. Definitely not going to sacrifice riding over having kids much longer. I hope she gets the 10+ winners needed for the championship. When I seen Briony I thought this is the best but Rachel has eclipsed her.
