    Default Lough Erne Islands

    I caught the end of Countryfile on Sunday, just as John Craven said "and next week we will be exploring just some of the 154 islands in Lough Erne in Northern Ireland". There's also going to be a bit about caravanning which doesn't sound so good (although presented by Michaela Strachan, so it might be worth a look....).

    Anyway, for those lucky people in Northern Ireland - worth a look to see if they tell us anything new. For everyone else, worth a look to see what we go on about every now and then

    154 islands eh?

    Looks like we've got some catching up to do, I've only camped on two of them

    Only when the last tree has died
    and the last river been poisoned
    and the last fish been caught
    will we realise we cannot eat money.

    Have only had a short time on Lower Lough (that was where my avatar pic was taken)

    Definitely excellent photography on the programme. I'd not seen the upper Lough from the air before, it looks fantastic.

    I feel very priveleged to be able to go there on the weekends.....

    Thanks Al
    Cakie has it on Sky+ and my brother 'thinks' he's taped it (dont ask!) so I will get to see it.

    Hi Alan,
    I think I'd like a look at it. Is this a good reason to meet at Shaws Bridge next week?
