    Hi guys/gals,

    Is there any new places to shoot out there, I'm doing a lot around the Kildare Laois border area, haven't done much in Dublin and only a little in Wicklow, what is everyone else at?, should a thread be put up with a list of locations or is that silly, I've a few spots that I'd like to share, what does everyone think.

    Hi there Paul...and welcome to Irish APUG.:smile:

    Last December a group of us met up in Carlingford, Co Louth and spent a nice day shooting and had a spot of lunch and a chat. I really enjoyed it.

    In fact I have just scanned a few pics up on my flickr page. Come to think of it rather than listing out the various sites I have photographed it might be as handy to take a scoot through it (assuming I am permitted to attach the link?):confused:

    Hi Seoirse, thanks for that, you've given me a few ideas, give me a shout if you're looking for places around Laois & Kildare, I may have some images that I can scan and put up at some stage. Paul

    Glendalough is looking good was down there with my son at the weekend, will look even better in a few weeks time when the leaves change colour. Mullingar lakes are also worth a visit especially in winter.

    Sounds like a good idea for a thread.

    Have any of you guys gone to Lough Boora Parklands near Tullamore, a bit of everything going on there, wildlife, a couple of average sized lakes, scultpures, bog land to beat the bands and lots of macro, I'll try and get the sat nav numbers when I'm next there, Paul.

    Spotted some really cool looking trees just off the new section of Dublin - Belfast road/motorway, from the Camlough rd roundabout to the Sheepbridge inn, both directions, seems to have some really promising scenes. Just waiting for the right day.

    Slightly concerned about leaving my car on the side of the road though. Am I being silly?

    I use flickr to find places to take pictures especially if its an area I dont know to well, I just do a search for a place name or county etc...Getting into the car and going for a drive around country backroads looking over hedges can also help find places to take pictures...

    Hi Sinead, I know what you mean about your car, you are sometimes taking your life into your hands walking anywhere near any road, hard to know what advice to give you but you're not being silly, Paul

    Hi,
    in relation to this thread today I went to check up a new place near, Lecarrow, midway from Athlone to Roscommon,
    at the place in question there are the remains, ruins of castle Rinduin/Rindoon castle along with some remain
    from old St. Jhons church, St.Jhons Hospital next to a graveyard .. there is also a long strecht of between 100-200 metres
    long normand wall defense ... all this surround by the lake Shannon .. worth to visit.
    The google maps link is: (just drop the human dummy at the crossroad junction of the three roads to see the directions for the castle.)
