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. Now 2013 has been a problem for those superstitious folk so this year those cars registered in the first half of the year will start with 131 and those in the last six months with 132! The Irish have an answer for everything
