Over the coming weeks in our household bubbles we hope to reach as many landmarks around Ireland as we can. We’re walking, jogging, running and cycling anyway so let’s see where we could be going! So choose a destination, go to Google maps to work out the distance and tally up your km as you do them. Learn a bit of geography on the way. Then maybe in the summer we might get to see some of these places for real! 🤞🙏 Keep us posted please. Ms.Darcy
