Walking, Drugs & Rock N Roll
Just for fear that the drugs squad are monitoring this forum and think that I am running a meth lab, I can confirm that by tracking my IP address you will find nothing more than a quiet suburban semi d. There will be no illicit drugs fueling our challenge, just carbs and caffeine.

Our taste in music would be a fair bit different from yours Conor, the closest that we might get to those tunes is a bit of the Trainspotting sound track, but there won't even be a bit of Cocaine from old slowhand himself on this trip. Some candidates for our roadtrip soundtrack:
The Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
Ramble On - Led Zeppelin
Highway to Hell & Ride On - AC/DC
Riders in the Storm - The Doors (as we head off through the midlands)
The End - The Doors (as we drive the last stretch into Louth)

Thanks for your very kind offer Wicklore, but I don't think we will need support crew. Although, you or any others who want to join us for all or part of the adventure are most welcome to. Maybe you could send us off from the Lug and Black Cre could meet us at the top of Foye waving a large Louth flag!

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
