On Friday, Ireland received some news regarding the ongoing Covid situation. Some may be happy; some may be nervous – for me it is business as usual.
It’s the Weekend again!
Hi guys, its the weekend again and those few days flew. It has been a busy few days.. It is important to keep yourself busy, especially where we are today. In Ireland, we have a Public Holiday on Monday so I am going to think about where I will walk this time around. Oh, I... Continue Reading →
It’s Saturday & Some News I need to talk about…
First of all I need to apologise for the delay in posting. With my time dedicated to work from Monday to Friday, I don't have a lot of time for writing however I do try to write during the weekends or during the evenings. Last week, I had a nice easy walk, nothing too strenuous,... Continue Reading →
The Easter Break..a chance to renew..
It's a little over two weeks before I return to Spain, on what will be my first Camino this year.

There was much anticipation which is usually the case when I think about returning to Spain. I... Continue Reading →

From the age of 12 right up to my mid-20's, I got great enjoyment out of writing and playing guitar on a regular basis. It was a pretty fun... Continue Reading →
The Camino de Santiago goes on and on…
La Voz de Galicia published an article online detailing new figures released from the Pilgrims Office in Santiago. Predictably, the total number of compostelas issued to pilgrims in 2016 has already surpassed those issued to pilgrims in the whole of 2015. We are also stepping into unknown territory also, as we are close to "Holy... Continue Reading →
The Irish and the Camino..
Hi everyone, just some news that happened over the last week. I went along to a talk given by Turlough of Donnell of the Irish Camino Society entitled "The Irish and the Camino de Santiago: 800 Years of History" as part of the Dublin History Festival. During the hour or so, Turlough talked about how Irish... Continue Reading →
