I just love the names of these northern Irish towns. e.g Cootehill, Clones, Rockcorry. I'm in thick pastoral country, a rich green canopy of trees, cows and emerald fields. The roads are like winding narrow pathways. Suddenly you come into a town, like a time-warp, Irish architecture as solid as its stonework frontage. Immemorial, its land and its culture dating back to the Late Stone Age. No big shopping complexes here, just traditional shop fronts, with pubs along the street, just a few paces with your feet and you have a bar, then another bar, and a bar & grocery shop!
