Continuing this week with another Irish photo rally point. This one is just a couple of mile from my home. The Dromara Destroyers roadracers. Here in Ireland a lot off motorcycle racing is done on public roads that are closed to the public for the days racing. The four that made up The Dromara Destroyers are Brian Reid, Ray McCullough, Trevor Steele and Ian McGregar. I grew up watching this racers through the1960’s, 1970’s and into the 1990’s.
I grew on one of the oldest road racing courses in Ireland, the Temple 100. I include a YouTube link
So back to the Dromara Destroyers garden in the village of Dromara, County Down, Northern Ireland.
These are just four of the many racers that gave us some great racing here in Ireland. I take my hat off to all of them, the ones that are still racing, the ones retired and those that died too young.
This week one of the biggest road races in the world is happing, The Isle of man TT. Yesterday a local racer lost his life competing on the island.
Davy Morgan R. I. P, and deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
I have missed a couple of week’s posts due to a bout of illness. But back on track, so we are going to Ballydevitt Cottage in County Londonderry . I have tried to find some history about this small cottage,without success.
I talked to a local couple but they are only a few years in the area, so at some point I will go back and see if I can get some information about it’s history.
This is another Irish photo rally point, it’s in Aghadowey, County Londonderry.
I’m going to add the coordinates which you can copy to Google maps and go to street view to see the location.
