This is from Barbara , my wife , who is having fun in Ireland.
On the road to Killarney
Picked up my trusty little steed and headed south. The weather has turned quite iffy and mostly damp but I decided to drive round the Dingle Peninsula anyway along the Slea Head Drive. It was a great decision as the sun came out on the way round and it is some of the most stunning scenery I have seen so far
All number plates in Ireland are like this: this car was registered in 2012 (12) in the county of Dublin (D) and it was the 21433 rd car registered that year.
