Sketch: Ballina

ink drawing of BallinaBack to Mayo then, and so soon after Westport.

I did a painting of Ballina last year, though I was never really happy with the right hand side, and will probably repaint it. You'll notice this ink sketch of Ballina is from the far side of the bridge.

In Ballina I watched The National That Never Was, and later went for a Chinese. Back then I was suspicious of how we would cater to our own conservative wet vegetable palate, while dining among gold dragons. The Irish solution to this Irish problem was to pour Bisto on every dish. Ahhh, that's Chinese.

I'd been gambling on Belmullet, Mecca of the West.
Unlucky. There'll be another town beginning with 'B' along shortly - and it too is not Belmullet. Don't give up guessing - and that's a clue!
