Just caught up with your thread, my paternal Grandmother came from Glengariff and my Father spent much of the war as a child evacuated there. I have never been, I must make the effort. Good to see how much your bike gets used.

Steve,
If you were to yield to temptation and after the event sign it, maybe you could become famous as the creator of 'post modernist industrial art' or something like that with a fancy name. In fact you could go around doing it wherever it takes your fancy always remaining 'incognito' like Banksy!!!! :lol:

Yes you must Tony, chances are there will be people around who will have known your Grandfather and if my Aunt had still been alive she would probably have known him also. When I used to bring her to England we'd have to do at least 200 miles before she'd stop meeting people she knew :D
Keith, I wouldn't get away with it. My oil leaks would give me away!

Grandmother Steven ! :D And I know she would definitely have been known, she was an O'Connell, as in Daniel O'Connell, she was a direct descendant. I showed my Mum Glengariff on Google street view the other day, there is a shop O'Connell's in the High street.

After getting to Hemel Hempstead I had a job in Twickenham at the Orleons Art Gallery. Just a few covers in the Kitchen Plant room.
It was alongside the River Thames and opposite Eel Pie Island. Apparently it got its name from making Eel Pies.

Here's a guy on the river Nev, that never looks forward but never looks back either but needs someone to help go forward because he's always looking back.. :D

This is the boat that pick ups and keeps the Thames clear. I wonder how many shopping trolleys it collects.

Noted, Steven. I wonder they don't use forward vision mirrors. Take some of the excitement out of it perhaps? Nev

Health and Safety Nev.
First thing a small Job in Basingstoke after that I've a job at a Sewerage Works. It's name? Burpham STW. Couldn't make it up. But luckily the route between Basingstoke and Burpham is gorgeous. It passed close by to Goodwood Motor Circuit and the air field. Couldn't resist this photo.
