Thursday Doors – Cavan

Last weekend my family had a get together in what is soon to be our new hometown, Belturbet in County Cavan. We rented two houses next door to each other and played crazy golf in the daytime and board games at night and even the dog, aka The Gaffer, enjoyed himself.

Our ages ranged from 84 years to 20 months and some of us even found time for a spot of fishing. This is a view from under the bridge of some of the public mooring in the town, it’s also where the fishing took place.



Some of us spent a lovely evening in Flynn’s bar, just around the corner (here’s a shot of the beer garden that I took from the back bedroom of the house I stayed in). The pub is celebrating 50 years in business this year and I have to say I like their choice of door colour.


The house we stayed in had a nice selection of photographs and paintings on its walls, one of which was very appropriate for a Thursday Doors enthusiast.


Thanks so much for viewing this week’s short and sweet Thursday Doors. Norm’s blog has a link to lots of international doors, if you’d like to see some more.
