Miss Furey behind the bar, Moyvalley, Co. Kildare

A visit to the delightful bar of Miss Furey in Moyvalley and to the O'Dea Collection today! It looks like a welcoming house and that James was a welcome guest.


As well as confirming the mapping location, BeachcomberAustralia has confirmed that we were here 6 years ago. And that our photographer had shared a glass in the same establishment 2 years prior also. I don't doubt he was there more than twice. To the extent that I wonder if he was "Mr O'Dea" or "James" (or even "Jim") to the lady behind the bar....
