    Funny neil is believed to have been a Viking trading post. Easy to find. Just head in through the narrows and look for the distinctive mound of an island.

    Good one, Mr Nick. Great voyaging.

    My turn was in Clare Glen. And on another day on the Annacloy. And that time on the Bann. It comes from wearing dry suits.
