the market

Leghowney Country Market is located in  the Leghowney Community Hall which is not far from Donegal Town.  Every other Saturday the market is held and members sell their crafts, produce and baked goods.  The food they serve is all from the local area.  On their menu, they have a five mile fry which everything is within five miles locally. 

the Irish Famine Pot

those two loaves that you see are inflatable.  Hard to believe, they looked so real. :)

the tea man was hard to focus, he was always moving refilling tea mugs.

the peace bridge

I took this photo last July when we were at the Derry train station to pick up a friend.

The Peace Bridge is a cycle and foot bridge across the River Foyle in Derry, Northern Ireland. It opened on 25 June 2011, connecting Ebrington Square with the rest of the city centre.

buncrana library

Buncrana Library is located in a converted Presbyterian church. The architect Peter Cullinane designed the building as 'mother and child'. This design allows the extension to coexist in harmony with the existing church. The building has a partial first floor mezzanine. Natural light from windows is supplemented with low energy fluorescent lighting. The building is naturally ventilated. A traditional 'Drontheim' fishing boat hangs suspended from the ceiling.
