Some Vacation Links:

Castle Leslie, Glaslough, County Monaghan, Ireland

The estate boasts three lakes, rolling parkland and a fine covering of mature native hardwoods.
Oak, Ash, Sycamore and Yew form part of the ancient woods of Truagh that goes back to Celtic times.
After a game of tennis in the pleasure grounds, enjoy a picnic basket under the boughs of a great tree or row a boat across the lake.

On a lazy Summers day experience the tranquil timeless feeling of a piece of Irish heaven.
In the Autumn, when the woodlands many golden hues reflect on the waters at sunset there's no more beautiful place to be than Glaslough.
As nature slumbers for the winter the Castle comes in to its own with mulled wine served by roaring log fires cocooning you from the elements.

On Antarctica

This book On Antarctica is filled with anecdotes
of humour, tragedy, fire, war, wildlife, tourism,
mountaineering, celebration, base-life, yachting,
travel, science, sex and even spies! 

The book is an extraordinary but true account of
life on remote Antarctic bases where people live
with few companions; no neighbours, no shops,
no help, no hospitals and no way out.

Read how Antarctica was affected by the Falkland
Island war with new,
original material never before released.  Read about
the Petermann tragedy and the desperation of
isolation in Antarctica. 

Read what they do in Antarctica to survive
those winter nights and celebrate those special occasions. 

Read about life On Antarctica, mesmerising,
a book outstandingly written with scores of
illustrations and photographs.
