Whilst every one was safely stored away inside their homes, apréz gorging themselves on large quantities of poultry and wine, I took a stroll through Castlebar city centre. All is peace, all was quite on Christmas night in Castlebar. There used to be famous card games on main street years ago. They ended suddenly when men started bringing weapons to the games. That's when you know gamers are taking a few hands of 25 far too seriously.

I'm not sure who the lady is in the picture. I told her I was working for CNN, uncovering militants in west Mayo. She said to take her picture anyway. I know she has a son state side, and she said she wished him a very happy Christmas. As for me she advised I be careful if I was heading to Erris, the place is full to the gills with latchecos and militants.
