Pierce.  Air Traffic Control minion.Copyright is mine.Fáilte☘🇮🇪My own personal views,not work.So there.

A wee bit of history fix as these pesky Vikings paid a visit to my home city of Waterford,Ireland in 842AD to spread a bit of love.
It’s illegal (punishable by many hours of Fika) to visit this beautiful city and not pay homage to the Fab Four. Flares and platforms were worn for a reason; Abba exploited a Swedish law which meant clothes were tax deductible if their owners could prove they were not used for daily wear...’nuff said. ▶️⏩⏩⏭

Fancy a job where if you have disagreements with your elected opposition colleagues,both of you just stop working?... And still get a full MLA salary?. Come to the paralyzed Northern Ireland assembly where running a Provence is an optional extra to serving the public who voted for you .#feckinMLAejitscopon.
The quiet Parliament Building,known as Stormont is in the beautiful Stormont Estate,Belfast. .

A short hop and step off the stunning Causeway Coastal Route are The Dark Hedges.
Used as a filming location for Game of Thrones,Transformers and The Last Knight.
In 1775 James Stuart built Gracehill House,named after his wife Grace Lynd (yup!).Over 150 beech trees were planted along the entrance road to the estate,about 90 are still alive.
They have survived graffiti,daubing of sectarian slogans on the trees and silly ejits parking on the trees roots.
Spooky Norn Iron. ⏩⏩⏭.

Before the storms.
