Eyeries, Ireland

 Happy New Year 2015! Mine has started pretty well postcard-wise and hopefully will continue that way.

Today's first card isn't one of the most recent ones I've received, though, but one from a swap a little over a year ago. I just love the colours here!

Eyeries is a village and townland on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Ireland overlooking Coulagh Bay and the mouth of the Kenmare River in the south-west. It lies at the base of Maulin, which, at 623 m, is the highest peak in the Slieve Miskish mountain range that forms part of the backbone of the peninsula. Eyeries was the location for the shooting of the film The Purple Taxi (1977) starring Fred Astaire, Peter Ustinov, and Charlotte Rampling, and also the 1998 TV series Falling for a Dancer, a dramatisation of life and love in 1930s Ireland based on the novel by Deirdre Purcell.

Eyeries has three pubs, a shop/restaurant and a post office (according to the information on the back of the card).
