Meath Picture Game.

    Shamelessly stolen and copied from the Dublin forum, (I tip my hat towards Exit for his idea), I thought it would be an idea to see if a similar game could take off in the Meath forum.

    Basically, the idea is to post a photo of a place somewhere around County Meath. It has to give some idea as to where it may be, so not just a random field or tree, but something people could reasonably recognize. The pics must be ones you took yourself, not ones copied from the internet. The winner is the person who guesses where the place is (if in a town, you must give name of building, or street), and its then their turn to post a picture and see if others can guess.
    Winners can forfeit their go if they want to the next person who see their forfeit and posts their own picture as the next turn.

    So to start us off, here's one which I think is not too difficult. Anyone know what or where we are in this picture?


    ( Aw man, I feel like Teresa Lowe now :D )

    The cathedral of St Peter and St Paul in Trim perhaps? (Near Marcies pub) Though I'm not sure if that has a complete window like in your image.
    Nice picture too!

    You're Correct!! :D Ha Ha Heres the full view:
    There are some very good "ruins" for photographing in Meath, a few on my "To Do" list are indeed Bective Abbey, Bective Church (Before it gets sold...Was waiting on the Euromillions to help me fund the purchase but alas it wasn't to be) & there is what looks like a derelict Mill on the Duleek-Balrath road & a modern / Neolithic grave yard near Lismullen, Piltown house near Bettystown (Burnt down recently...Shame)

    The pictures were taken on a small digital camera that I carry in the car, I'm surprised how well some of them turned out!!

    Not Dalgan Park, no. If anyone else has a picture post away, reckon this one is too tough.
