Monday 20th – The stunning “Copper Coast” from Dungarvan to Tramore…..

After stopping for the night, in one of the most bizarre places ever, I was prevailed upon by a nurse, who I met in the car park to go up to Mount Melleray Monastery where I might derive some solace so I did !!

Then, in a somewhat more relaxed, spiritual and less stressed demeanour, I found myself in the beautiful harbour town of Dungarvan where I indulged in my last “full Irish”!!

I then headed for the “Copper Coast”, driving past some amazing cliffs and coastal scenery which equals anything that I’ve seen in Kerry and Donegal.

When I was in a car park taking photographs, A white van drove past, turned round and came back and the guy said

Hey it’s you – the mad guy travelling around Ireland on a tiny bike”.

We stopped and chatted for a while then I carried on along the coast to Tramore and then up to passage west and across the ferry where I met Jack Nolan on his Triumph Thruxton.

We rode together out to the Hook Lighthouse and then past other coastal sites and Cistercian Abbey called “Tintern” – the same as the one we have in Wales!

When we said our goodbyes, I drove again on the back roads to Kilmore Quay which is pretty major fishing port and very pretty.

Finally I arrived back in Rosslare after 1600 miles riding around the coast of the entire island of Ireland on my trusted little YB. Actually I felt quite satisfied with myself but especially proud of the little bike.

Tomorrow, I have to be at The ferry at 6:30am for the 7:30am sailing arriving back in Fishguard around 11am. I then have the bottom breaking journey from West Wales back to Tetbury.

I particularly chose this to happen on Midsummer day so it doesn’t matter what time I get back – I’ve got till about 9 o’clock before I start to lose the light but I am hoping to be back by about Six.
