Gardening / Planting in the fine weather

 

This fine weather has everyone out gardening and planting in the West of Ireland. With the fresh vegetables like potatoes, carrots and cabbage planted, lets hope we can sample some of these home grown delights very soon 🙂

Mayo Mini Marathon 2012

Ladies Mayo Mini Marathon, Castlebar, Co. Mayo – May 6th 2012

Or some ladies that are not so much ladies (men dressed as women) in the case of these photographs – even got a nice shot of some Spongebob Squarepants undies 🙂

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Small airplane flying round quite low in the sky in Commauns, Burren, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland on May 2nd 2012. Not really sure if it was flying lessons or not, but something different to photograph 🙂

Boats Lough Cullen

These pictures show some of the fishing boats at Lough Cullen,Pontoon, Co. Mayo.  Also some links, chains and up close shots to get a different look.

Lough Conn joins Lough Cullen at lovely Pontoon, which is famous for its salmon pool at Pontoon Bridge. Tucked away under the shadow of Nephin Mountains and surrounded by forests and sandy beaches and bays, Lough Conn extends nine miles from north to south and varies in width from two to six miles.

Trout fishing on Lough Cullen generally starts around the 17th March with the trout feeding voraciously on freshwater shrimp, snails and hoglice. Given some mild weather, large chironomids, colloquially known as duckfly appear. Trout feed on all stages of duckfly hatches.

Mayflies start appearing around the end of April and, from then to the end of June, some exciting fishing can be had. All Mayfly patterns fished wet work well and some excellend sport can be enjoyed with dry patterns. From 1st July to the end of the season, very little fishing is carried out on Cullen because of the weed and algae growth due to enrichment.

Nephin Mountain | Lough Conn

These pictures I took in Pontoon Co. Mayo show the beautiful Nephin Mountain from the shores of Loch Conn. Some of them are taken behind the Pontoon Bridge Hotel, and some along the shore of the lake.  It was a beautiful day with a blue sky and nice big clouds.

Windmills Kiltimagh

Windmills / wind turbines in Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo. They are on a raised site with some television mast and amazing view of Croagh Patrick and the surrounding areas in Co. Mayo.  Along with the windmills there are a number of bogs up the hills / mountains for turf cutting.
