the peace bridge

I took this photo last July when we were at the Derry train station to pick up a friend.

The Peace Bridge is a cycle and foot bridge across the River Foyle in Derry, Northern Ireland. It opened on 25 June 2011, connecting Ebrington Square with the rest of the city centre.

dublin airport

last week our daughter arrived from Oregon for a visit.  We traveled to Dublin to meet her flight and then we all headed to Killybegs for a wonderful holiday.  Hope everyone had a wonderful week, we sure did.

buncrana library

Buncrana Library is located in a converted Presbyterian church. The architect Peter Cullinane designed the building as 'mother and child'. This design allows the extension to coexist in harmony with the existing church. The building has a partial first floor mezzanine. Natural light from windows is supplemented with low energy fluorescent lighting. The building is naturally ventilated. A traditional 'Drontheim' fishing boat hangs suspended from the ceiling.
