So despite the debate re nomenclature for The Republic of Ireland, I am none the wiser. If I enter Northern Ireland from mainland UK, then when I travel to the border with Donegal, sure I am travelling from the part of the UK which the Republic has exempted from being liable to being quarantined etc...
Those are both really kind answers, thanks folks. Actually, the only map I need is number 11. I had submitted my copy to Lewisham Council Transport Planning Department when they proposed extended pedestrian/ cycling routes in the Borough.

I’m starting to get a righteous picture here: a small change of thought perhaps for you all! My dad contracted TB in his late teens and went into isolation. Came out after several months and was quite healthy until WW2. Volunteered straight away but essentially should have been rejected. Posted to J...
Quotation from Carlton Green,“ Because I’m not vulnerable I’ll cycle alone, but I have no doubt that there definitely are circumstances where the greater good is served by riders having a safe distance buddy. In life there are always instances where we focus so hard on avoiding one hazard that we fa...
