Wexford coast: first the Bakkers, now peril from the seas

Last weekend, Anita and I drove through one of the few regions of Ireland we had not yet visited: the Sunny Southeast. In February, County Wexford is not so sunny, but it was a worthwhile trip nonetheless. Naturally, we posted a photoset of our trip for you.

I rushed this set of photos to the blog because some of the places we visited are under threat from a large oil slick in the Irish Sea. Two Russian Navy ships may have created the oil spill during a refueling operation. As of yesterday, it’s not clear how the oil was spilled or whether it will hit the Wexford coast. The Bugle will continue to monitor the situation from its Dublin HQ.
