Video: Bad song composition in Skerries, Co.Dublin.

Myself and my brother are in training for the Gaelforce event in Mayo in August. So, last weekend we did a 14km loop in north Co.Dublin finishing off in Skerries.
Despite our exhaustion we managed to lift a few pints afterwards (as a reward to ourselves). Before doing so, we took a short stroll around the town.
Skerries looks like a great place to live. A long beach, interesting harbour & a playground for the kids.
It also has wonderful views of the Mourne mountains to the north. Interestingly, it was in Skerries that Percy French composed "The Mountains of Mourne" ..'Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea..' etc. (In the video, my brother tries his own hand at dodgy composition.)
A good place to stop after a long run.
