On June 24th last I was passing through Kilbeggan in Co. Westmeath and I snapped this photo of a rather shabby looking former Bank of Ireland branch.  Later that evening I used the photo to illustrate a post about the impending recession.  Just yesterday I was again passing through Kilbeggan and was pleasantly surprised to seee that the building has had a facelift.  Do you supppose someone at BOI head office came across the photo on the web? (Although, how a search for Californian escort agencies could lead one to my site is a bit of a mystery!)

 Anyway, the denizens of Kilbeggan are, I’m sure, delighted that this eyesore in the heart of their village has benn rectified.
