AIR 2008 video: Driving through rock tunnels in southwest Ireland

On the second day of the AIR, we drove through these rock tunnels on the N71 between Glengarriff and Kenmare, on the Beara Peninsula. The music playing on the car stereo is a recording of a live session that the_magician and I went to at the Sin E pub in Cork the previous night. We think it might have been a band called The Polskadots. I think wibble_puppy was very glad we made the recording and were able to play it back in the car for her because she wanted to go to the session in person but really needed to rest instead.

Here is the video.

MOT success

Fenchurch passed her MOT on the second attempt, after fitting new handbrake cables and swapping the newer and less corroded headlights from Lintilla onto her. I'd somehow forgotten to reconnect one of the headlight power connectors but the nice chap at Motor Services Rossendale let me sort it out while he waited (took me about a minute). She's done 12,430 miles in the past year.

AIR 2008 video: Inch Strand

On the second day of the Around Ireland Rally, we stumbled across the Inch Strand on the way to our accommodation on the end of the Dingle Peninsula. It's a lovely place with great views in all directions. wibble_puppy wandered off along the beach staring thoughtfully out to sea, the_magician sat down and meditated for a while, and I clambered over the sand dunes to see what was on the other side (answer: more sea and mountains!).

Here is the video.
