a few northern ireland pics ive taken recently

They brought back a few memories.

Forkhill is almost gone completely. XMG hasn't changed in 15 years though.

I guess you've just been traveling round the province recently?

Quite sad to see Forkhill in that state. Some good and not so good memories of that place in the early and mid eighties.

Armagh still looks the same though! 8O

I drove down the falls a few weeks ago, something I wouldn't have dared to do 12-15 years previous!

A Police CAR drove down a few cars ahead of me and it was just that, a car with 2 constables sat inside!

I think that the windows were reinforced as a similar car stopped at Macciedees and I had a quick scan but just think, no armoured landy just a car...

Been looking at the photos - the 'perminint check point' one is a perfect example. This has been closed for nearly five years yet it is made out to be still active. Don't be taken in by this person.
