A particular interest, nay
obsession of mine, the European air war of 1914-18, can nowadays
be experienced practically first hand by many fine computer simulations,
not the least of which are 'Flying Corps' or even 'Red Baron
II', prompting me to be moved by the Muse to produce my own
small telling of a unique chapter of history. Clamber into the
cockpit of the death-trap of your choice at Dawn,
1917, or even have another look if you haven't been there
recently, it literally grows in telling...

And, what can I say? I'd asked here
that if anyone could tell me the tune to The
Song of The Dying Aviator, or even to suggest one, then I'd
be much obliged.
Well, no sooner said than done!
John McKeon, who incredibly only lives
down the road in Limerick, not only knows the song well from his
days in the RAF, but if you drop
him a line he will actually sing it to you over the phone!
Just make sure you have a bottle of Stingo close to hand first...

Have a squint at the song either
Clare Anti-Incinerator Campaign
Órla Ní Éilí,
a friend of mine, has all her life campaigned selflessly for people
and the environment, and in her current fight against the installation
of an industrial toxic waste incinerator on the outskirts of Ennis,
is now looking at a potential £300,000 in legal costs since
the failure of both her appeal to the High Court and her recent
appeal to the Supreme Court to block the licencing of the incinerator
by the Environmental Protection Agency, of all people.
I've done up a
bit of a page for her, setting out the situation, and showing
how you can help too...
Go there now!!!

Ennis School Project
A recent and welcome development in
Ennis has been the opening of a new multidenominational school,
run along the lines of the 'Educate Together' ethos, and as my
is one of the 'founder members', having started there in September
1998, and Sophie in 1999, you can check it all out at some
pages I've done out for them. It's looking good so far, with
at least 20 children there at the opening day, and now two years
later looking to start in September 2000 with over 100 children!

The results of my first venture into the tawdry world
of commerce are here for all to see. In other words, I GOT
PAID FOR IT! YES!!!
A few bob and a bottle of Powers...
I never thought I'd ever say this, but, click on the
banner and see what you think of it all.

And then there's this other much more lucrative venture
back into the distastefulness of cash rewards, a site to gladden
the hearts of tyre-kickers everywhere! Click on the banner below
for a ramble through the very wonderful selection of new and used
cars at Ashline Motors,
main dealer for SEAT cars in Clare...
With thanks to Fiona
for the nifty graphics... Couldn't have done it without ye girl!

There's a personal
pic or two to be seen if you've nothing better to do than
wait for the damn things to load... New pics!!! Added 17 August 1999. Brace yourself!
Then there are a few more there now, two groups
of pics, since 3
January 2000, one or two
for all the 'Quiet Man' fans out there, and a nice few pictures
of the bit of a flood we had at Christmas here
More to follow anon, (anyone for home-brew?)
but while you're waiting, why not stick
something into the Guestbook..., say hello, leave a message,
ask a question, make a statement, start a fight, anything! After
all, we are nothing if we do not interract, for are we anything
more than the sum of our interractions?
Or if you're really stuck for human
contact, drop me a line
And talking of interraction, by
popular request I've given the chop to that bloody awful Java
chat thing, at last! Now THAT was staring into the abyss...
This site is intended to be fairly
text heavy, so hopefully if you are having trouble reading it,
I don't reaallly have to tell you anything about hitting the 'font'
button, sure I don't? Hi Denzil!
Especially now that I've discovered
how to make the text bigger in the first place!
Lastly for now, for a
comprehensive listing of just about everything to be or to do
in County Clare, have a ramble along to the WWW
Guide to County Clare
