My Holidays

I had a week off for Halloween and I was very happy to have all the time to my self.
One of the best things that happen is my dad bought a pre owned car on Friday.
In the morning Dad and I went to the car salesman in Firhouse,
after the test drive I went in the BMW E39 for a spin I enjoyed it very much!
The car is navy blue, it's a 4 dr saloon, 520i it has a BMW radio, I got to listen to Radio Nova in it.

Here is a picture of a BMW instrument cluster from the E38/E39 cars
Afterwards he had to get some petrol, So I stopped at Topaz and I watched dad putting petrol in it

On Monday I went to see the Marathon in Dublin with my family, we were standing in Terenure village, it was sunny and nice, there were many people there. Here is the map of the Dublin Marathon http--dublinmarathon.ie-map-2012.pdf

Accommadation in Terenure

History Of Terenure

Terenure come from the Irish” the land of the yew tree”.

Terenure is in South Dublin, beside Kimmage and Harold’s Cross.

Terenure, Drimnagh and Kimmage, on the south side of Dublin City, were given to the Barnewell family by King John in 1215. The Barnewells gave some of the land to St John The Baptist Hospital outside Newgate, and Cromwell confiscated the remainder from them. Terenure passed through the hands of various owners since then, including what is now Terenure College (bought by the Carmelites in 1860).

Terenure is the home of the The Star newspaper.
