To Dublin

We leave Galway and head east to Dublin on the N6.  This route is not direct, but travels in a zig zag path to arrive at our destination.  We passed through so many quaint towns with the lyrical names that define Ireland.  It was in  Ballinasloe that the above picture was taken.  An innocent Brinks type truck delivering or transporting money to the bank accompanied by ten armed guards (can you see the guns!).  Its not easy being a bank robber in Ireland!

That's some fire power! But, that's kind of scary. I wonder how many robberies they do have. :-) ---Robbie

Not that I don't love a man in a uniform (especially one who speaks with an accent.. 2 for 1) but this would freak me out.  ¤Holly
