i know st paddy s day is always a good date for regions to set up a run, but i said i d be first in. The plan is to start from the big metal horse on the sligo rd about 12 o clock on the 17 of march. Hav nt really decided where were goin to go yet but will post it up closer to the date. we had 12 cars last year with only breakdown, me! :D We will finish outside the landmark hotel in carrick on shannon round about 3 or 4 o clock so everyone can have tea. After our AGM, Carrick is 1 hour 37 min from galway and 1 hour 50mins from Dublin. :lol: it would be fantastic if u could make it because it ll be great craic, and i will post pictures this time.

Well, today I joined up with Joe, Peter and the lads for a spin around the wonderful back roads of Roscommon & Leitrim.
A good group of 10 Minis,(and one Audi Cooper) met up at the Ass on the Pass outside Boyle on the N4.

Image

We headed down towards Geevagh and over the mountains into the wilds of Leitrim.

Image

Through twisted, dusty winding roads

Image

Following the Miners Way to Arigna,

Image

Back up the mountain, the beautiful Lough Allen and the Shannon ahead of us,

Image

Into Drumkeeran and across to Dowra where we stopped for a bit of grub.

Image

Then on through Ballinagleara and the mountains down to Leitrim Village and finally to the finish in Carrick on Shannon.

Image

The weather, the scenery, the cars and the company, all made for a great and successful run. Well done to all those involved.

TMG
