tag...I'm it !

Oh-er! I've just had my first tag. Wow, wasn't really sure what to do so checked out what others have done. Once I got my head round it all (yes, I know it is really quite simple) I had a rumage through my album and came up with Clontarf Castle, Clontarf, Dublin.

It really is classed as a castle and is situated in the centre of the suburb of Clontarf about 5 miles NE of Dublin. It used to be a private, family home but is now a rather lovely 4* hotel. Had the pleasure of staying here when we visited Dublin last year and definitely recommend it.

A little known fact (well, we didn't know this) is that Bram Stoker resided in Clontarf while penning "Dracula". So our visit was very educational as well as pleasurable !!!!

OK, time for me to pass on the tag. Firstly the rules:

1.pick the 6th picture from your 6th photo folder
2.tell the story around it

3.pass it onto 6 other people

I will be tagging:

Apologies in advance to those bloggers I have tagged - please don't feel obliged to play if you are too busy or just don't want to. Its just a fun way to get know a little more about you.

Well, that's it from me for now. Tag complete !


  1. That castle is lovely. My mum would like to see Southern Ireland, she's hoping that one day she'll go there. We were wondering what a light box is too, now we think it might be something to do with taking photos, but still not sure how it works. At first mum thought it was something to do with SAD and light therapy. Mum loves your jewellery, she's a right girly when it comes to stuff like that. She has tons of stuff to hang round her neck. I think they must get in the way of a good scratch:) Thanks for following me.

  2. Hi Henry,
    Thanks for stopping by. Please tell your Mum that I'm hoping to post up some more jewellery shots over the next few days.

  3. Popped over to say thanks for being a follower. I will be back to learn more about the photography; I bought a digital SLR last year and I'm still learning.
