McDonalds claim that it’s because the burger was first stored in a dry environment that took all the moisture out if it. Mould needs humidity to grow. In fairness, while you will get mould growing on bread, you don’t get it growing on toast (I’ve three kids, I find archaic toast regularly).

The site of Ranelagh must have been around Mountain View Road, or near Mortons. I think I remember hearing that before.

Also, you wouldn't think it because the slope is so gradual, but Mountain View and Beechwood Rd are actually on quite a height compared to the surrounding land. From here, you can see the spire lit up at night, and I'm sure I've been told there was a camp established there (I thought it was the irish, on their approach from the south) where they set up camp on a small hill.. probably where the Catholic Church is at Beechwood Rd

Yeah would've made sense to settle near the LUAS

Hence the "green line" of attack against the brits.

Obvious history is obvious.

If you’ve ever wondered why with the Earth rotating Eastwards, i.e. into the Lunar induced bulge of water, High Tides in Ireland occur - counter intuitively- earlier in Valentia than Wexford, this animated map shows why. There’s also other effects e.g. land masses and existing ocean currents.

An updated model suggests the shape of the Sun’s bubble of influence, the heliosphere (seen in yellow), may be a deflated croissant shape, rather than the long-tailed comet shape suggested by other research.
