ABC - N IS FOR NIARBYL

Niarbyl bay is situated along the West Coast of the Island. You may think it looks slightly familiar, especially the little cottage mid left of the image. If you've seen a film called "Waking Ned Devine"you've indeed seen this pretty little bay and cottage previously. Both were featured in the film. A lot of the films success was attributed to it's beautiful location, The Isle of Man. Niarbyl though has to take the biggest bow for the part it played as the stunning backdrop for key scenes.

Now owned by Manx National Heritage ,Niarbyl is noted as an important geological area. Visitors can find out more about the geology and history at the NIARBYL CAFE AND VISITOR CENTRE
which is part of the STORY OF MANN

So N today is for Niarbyl. If you'd like to play along see MRS NESBITT'S PLACE

Forgot to mention, loved the film, "Waking Ned Devine!" Of course, what is there not to like about a film like that.

Don't know the film and didn't know the name, just looked the location up on my 1995 road atlas and found it near Dalby.

Niarbyl sounds kind of foreign in a strange way, but it's really beautiful. Reminds me of some of the beaches along the Welsh coast which are really pretty (on a good day lol)
Glad to hear I persuaded you to listen to Ida, she's pretty great really.
P.S. I've never heard of "Waking Ned Devine" - what's it about, I love films as you probably already know!
Ciao with love
