Last. Patrick's Day gone by I was driving my mini towards Donegal Town to take part in the parade when I met about 14 minis travelling in the opposite direction - heading in the Killybegs direction. All flashed their lights at me. Later on that evening I saw them again passing through Glenties. Since then I've been wondering who the were. Obviously some mini group but which?

Was overtaken on the M50 today by a very original looking red Mini City (90 D 15385). I was in the middle lane exceeding the 100kph speed limit :oops: :oops: and it whizzed past in the outer lane! :D

spotted two minis this evening on my way to work, both north bound on the N11

one coming onto the N11 from Ashford,

one going off the N11 at Kilpedder

I flashed the hazards at both and beeped at the second one also (I was in a white Focus with a little mini sticker on the back :D )
