This is a place we only visited on a few occasions but, because a photo was printed on page 116 of 'Twixt Foyle and Swilly' it was a place high on the list of potential days out. It is called the Giant's Den and located on Mouldy Hill to the south east of Buncrana Co Donegal.
My Dad died recently. I thought I would do a short series on places that I will always associate with him. This is Knockninny Quay, Lough Erne, Co. Fermanagh. We had two great holidays here during the 1980's messing around in boats and canoes. This is a drawing of one night that my brother and I became becalmed and dad was among a group waiting for us on the quay. It all looked good but we were without an oar and worried that we wouldn't make it back. The original photograph was subsequently used in NI Tourist Board information for many years and was a regular reminder of a great family holiday.
