Friday Fact – Gold Rush!

Fine… I’ve got your juices flowing, haven’t I? The mere mention of a gold rush will get many a heartbeat notching up a beat or twenty. So… if I share a few details about a gold rush in Ireland’s Co Wicklow you may be one of those getting a tad excited. However… as is always the case… there may be a bit of dirt in the drinking water. In this case the rush was over many moons ago! But, and here’s the big Friday fact big but… that doesn’t prevent me from sharing a photo with you… taken through the dirty train window…

The remains of the buildings which once formed part of the Avoca gold rush... Co Wicklow, Ireland

PS – For my Afrikaans friends… drol in die drinkwater… it sounds so much better than dirt in the drinking water!

PPS – Happy Friday! As always, don’t do what I wouldn’t!
