12. Carlow/Kilkenny – Ireland’s Longest Bridge – 6km SW of New Ross 52.3603678° -6.9975707° We started out on the bikes in bright warm sunshine – a glorious day! The sky turned grey. It rained. It got cold. We turned back for home. We parked the bikes up, put the kettle on, had a cup of tea, and decided we’d stay home. And the sun came … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2020 – Ireland’s Longest Bridge
11. Wexford – Tacumshane Windmill – 7km SW of Rosslare 52.20876, -6.42406 I’ve just realised it’s been two months since I wrote a blog post. Years ago, in another blogosphere, I would blog every second day, or once a week at least. I’ve a lot going on at the moment between learning to ride my own bike (that’s a whole blog post in itself), and … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2019 – Tacumshane Windmill, Wexford
15. Limerick – Vulcan Sculpture, Stoneville Forge – 2km NW of Rathkeale 52.54198, -8.96261 Our ‘spur of the moment’ route last Sunday took us on a 271km loop and took in four photo points, the most unusual one (in my opinion) being the Vulcan Sculpture on the old forge ruin in Stoneville (an area previously known as Farranree) outside Ratheale in Limerick. Approaching from the … Continue reading Vulcan Sculpture, Stoneville Forge
12. Carlow/Kilkenny Brawder’s Family Blacksmith – 9 km NE of Carrick-on-Suir 52.42154600° -7.36261300° Finally we made a start on the 2019 Irish Photo Rally points. A spur of the moment decision one weekend a couple of weeks ago meant we crossed No. 12 – Brawder’s Family Blacksmith – off the list. One of the best things about the Irish Photo Rally is that it brings you … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2019 – Brawder’s Family Blacksmith, Tullahought
The Irish Photo Rally 2018 awards night took place this year in the Hodson Bay Hotel on Saturday the 2nd of February. This was the first time I’d attended and it was a really well organised, fun evening that would inspire anyone to get involved in this year’s photo rally. It provided a great opportunity for bikers (and pillions) to meet up and enjoy a … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2018 Awards Night
Irish Photo Rally 2018 – Nabbing the Northern Points Over 750km, 14 counties, and 9 photo points in a day and a half. Now that’s what I call a road trip! Here’s our map showing the route we took a few weeks ago taking in the Northern points on the Irish Photo Rally list. We took in points ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, ‘E’ and ‘F’ on … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2018 – Ulster Roadtrip!
I think I may have become slightly obsessed with the Irish Photo Rally. Himself (Helmet Man) told me about it a few weeks ago, not long after he first introduced me to the Honda, and sure I was hooked! The Irish Photo Rally event requires participants to take photographs of their motorcycles at various pre-determined locations around the country. Bronze, silver and gold awards are … Continue reading Irish Photo Rally 2018
