Photos from last week of July 2008




A nice horse and carriage in Kildare Town.



A group of 'intellectuals' in our housing estate amused themselves yesterday evening by repeatedly throwing this child's bicycle from the roof of a shed.



Ruins of old convent near Castledermot.



A lovely hanging basket at a house near Castledermot.






I spent an hour following this baloon and this is as close as I got in the graveyard in Kilcullen.



This abominable practice is prevalent in our wonderful traveller community. I have seen these people racing the ponies and sulkys in heavy traffic while whipping the unfortunate animals. A delightful little culture.



Somebody had great fun lining up these round bales of hay near Kildare Town.



And here we are preparing more. Hope the weather stays fine.



A 'joke' Garda/Police car at Crookstown, Co. Kildare.



A nice pastoral scene at Sherrif Hill, Co. Kildare.



An old abandoned ruins at Marshalstown near Castledermot.






Sheep close to road on the Curragh Plains near Kildare Town. It's a common sight to see dead sheep as some drivers just don't want to slow down.
