Location: Ballinrobe, Ireland

MapWell I was up in Belmullet and have returned having driven all around Mayo trying to find Knock. Great catch up with Eithne, Tim and all the gang. I was at the races on the strand and I have never seen anything like the crowds. I'm telling any of you that are in the west of Ireland next year. Go to the Geesala races! The sunday before the 15th August. Racing on the strand. Drinks from a marquee. (liable to run out though. They had to go to Ballina for more bottles while I was there. ) Coutry Music. Merry Go Rounds slides and all sorts for the kids and you can buy all sorts from the many stalls. If you are actually going for the racing it's a sight to behold the horses running on the beach.

The Ballinrobe choir sang in Knock on Mon 15th Aug. I want to congratulate Sr Francis and all there aren't many places in Ireland where the choir is so nice.

I am uploading more pictures.
