The Ponderosa Bar (Day Nineteen)

I had to travel to Derry this week. It’s a journey I’ve made many many times when I lived in Derry in the early 1990’s.  This is the “Ponderosa Bar”  which is a famous land mark on the Glenshane Pass and a pit stop we used to make coming and going over the pass. As the sign says it’s the highest pub in Ireland and has featured in a number of novels including Gerald Seymours “Harry’s Game”  The Glenshane Pass is named after Shane Crosagh O’Mullan a notorious highwayman who roamed the highways of Derry and Tyrone in late seventeen and early eighteen century.
