Another Toy For The Boys by 


Jonny and I drove to Rathmullan House in Donegal this evening for coffee, as you do. This rather lovely helicopter had landed in the grounds. It is not really the sort of thing you expect to find in the Irish countryside. I managed to get quite a few shots and although we had a good nosey around we never found out who it belonged to. Maybe one of our top golfers. We do have a few in N Ireland. I have never been this close to a helicopter, I suppose I should get out more often.
I came away thinking that I would hate to travel in one. It would be absolutely terrifying. I will remain on terra firma in my little Nissan Micra.
We didn’t manage to have coffee as they had special guests in the dining room and that was that. Maybe the helicopter will have gone when we next visit and we will be served coffee.

I am not a photographer but I love taking pictures of things that catch my eye. I hope you see something you like too!!

    I feel the same way about copters Joyce, rather I photograph them than travel in them, which is a pity because lots of places in Hawaii are only accessible through this mode of transport. Still wonderful shot, and beautiful toy indeed.

  • We are so used to seeing the army ones which have flown over the city for the last 40 years that is odd to see one that is privately owned………………..I think I will stick to the bigger planes………………………have a great weekend Angelika and thank you so much……………………….xx

    Great shot, Joyce. When I was wee, I didn’t want to be a nun like some other girls, I wanted to be a pilot. Still dreaming. LOL. x

  • I would love to know who this belonged to……………….there was a large party in the dining room with the champagne flowing but you cannot stand outside the window and take a photograph……………..God Agnes, I always thought you lived in the convent………………..I am shocked……………………lol……………………..thank you my friend……………………….xx

    Hi Sis
    No one as glamourous as a golfer I’m afraid. This helicopter is registered to ANGLO BEEF PROCESSORS IRELAND. But you do get a good steak in Rathmullen House!!
    Great shot

  • How fascinating Sis………………….I was really curious to know……………..they could have given me a lift to Brookeborough……………quicker than over the mountain……………………love you………………………Joycexxxxxxx
