Ennistymon and The Burran, Co. Clare, Western Ireland - 27th October 2006

It's the day after Caroline and Chris's wedding and Nosher and Isobel, with Gary and Vanessa cadging a lift, head over from the hotel on Spanish Point to a B&B in Corofin. We stop off in the small town of Ennistymon for breakfast at the Sugan Chair café, followed by a brief look around the town before driving around The Burran - an interesting, bleak, Dartmoor-esque region in County Clare - and a look at the sea near Ballyvaughan.
