The irish village sign Gaoth saile for Gweesalia , with a further give way sign in Irish – Geill sli – and the High Chaparral Bar in the background. The SLOW THROUGH VILLAGE sign however is duplicated in English. A fine male equivalent of the High Nelly roadster leans against the wall of the lounge. The High Chaparral was a TV western series, and the bar is probably so named because American Country music is quite popular in Ireland.
Listen to the High Chaparral theme tune as you gaze on….

    Do you think that was Trampus’s bike, or have I got the wrong programme? Fascinating, wonder why they chose the name for the bar…

    Funny, I thought that at first. I have added some extra material. Trampas was in the Virginian, played by Bill McClure.

    Oh, the shame of it! Sorry, Felix, you are right of course. Love the rusted supports of the road sign, by the way.

    So do I…@co-ophistorianalso likes this kind of thing, and the welsh marches are fertile territory in mainland Britain for stripey , forgotten poles. The village sign, however , looks very new, perhaps due to recent money available then to preserve the Irish language and herigate in the Galetacht areas.

    That’s the second thing you’ve started me looking for. You’re a bad influence, Felix!
