Lough Gill is a gem, but after many years away we did the boat trip on the lake in August 2013.

You could hazard some excuse for 'wadd-shooting' Irish developers, but that one of our national university colleges has built such monstrosities in such a sensitive beauty spot and ecosphere beggars belief.
But given what they've done to Galway itself in terms of gombeen planning its hardly surprising. Just as well the 'Celtic Tiger' came to the traincrash it is.
