Cycled the Greenway between Westport and Mulranny (and back, since it was so gorgeous).

And, incredibly enough, we did it in the sun (!!!) and a nice midge-eradicating breeze.

It was so beautiful I could have cried.

I still don’t know where they got the name from though… (???)

Going green

Before entering Westport, one has to address a silent prayer to Her Lady of the Wet Sheep, who in August 1896 turned rain into drizzle before the incredulous eyes of a (barely inebriated) Seamus Sweeney, who pledged there and then to build a monument in the honour of Her Lady. He eventually completed it once he sobered up.

In 1934.
