Perhaps the spot with the most exotic name in Ireland Valencia/Valentia (which ever way you choose to spell it). It looks delightful in the sun, and suitably Mediteranean with the steamer berthed close by! The presence of the steamer will probably help with the dating of this shot(?)
Wishing all our Irish friends a happy Bank Holiday weekend and a good weekend to those outside Ireland.
