I know exactly that place. I wonder what the story is. 2 miles further up the road there is a field full of granadas.

Tom Rigney in dungourney has a hearse inside in his workshop too. No idea what it is, but it has been there since before I was born I reckon.

It is. There was a Ford 4000 there too once, but I got my hands on that.

junkyard - was that you towing an old Granada Hearse on the M4 (eastbound) last Saturday evening?

I turned to the wife and said "that's probably junkyard" and she said "Who?"!!

No Wishbone, it wasn't me this time, I've enough on my plate at the moment. Thanks again Blue850 for the photo, it's a shame it's left to go to that state.

There is an abandoned Capri Mk III 1.6 Laser in the Marina Commercial Park in Cork. Didn't have time to inquire or take photos as I was there during work. Body looked sound enough though.

Hillman Hunter - late series, with the chrome rear panel, in a garage on the side of the road in Trien, near Castlerea Co Roscommon.

It's on the l.h.s. as you travel from Castlerea, in an old shed up against the public road, parallel to it. Shed has no door, so as you drive along, you'll see the chrome panel shining at ya, and the old chrome/black no plate.

Not technically abandoned! It's in a scrapyard in Mullingar, it only arrived there a few weeks back. Don't know if it's for sale or just awaiting restoration.

^ They could have at least put in on blocks.

Their is an old car, I think maybe a Vauxhall Viva or something like that, sitting on top of a container in the scrap yard across from the Red Cow. It is in rough condition and can be clearly seen from the Naas Road. I think it has gone past the restoration stage, as rust seems to have got the better of it.

that Vauxhall has gone now, not sure where to, but its amazing the car survived this long given the poor quality of metal they used at the time
