"The "not so common" Common Lizard" from Jim Holmes Contract pics

The "not so common" Common Lizard
The "not so common" Common Lizard!!
Spotted this Happy Chappy on the Wicklow Way, just after the bridge over the Dargle in-between Maulin and Djouce. "The common or viviparous lizard (Zootoca vivipara) is Irelandís only native species of reptile. This fascinating reptile gives birth to live young, a rarity in the reptile world, where most species lay eggs in order to reproduce. The lizard resides in areas such as bogs, coastal sites, grasslands and uplands is about 13cm long and hunts invertebrates like insects, spiders and snails".

Mizen Head
Ah yes - thank you for considering this - and of course if I had watched the end of the show, instead of turning it off perplexed, they would have told me :)

Well that's moved towards the top of my list of places to visit.

Mizen Head footbridge
The answer is in the title.
A fast search on Google with "bridges of ireland" gives few results :
