People do use the strangest queries to arrive on this site.
I had one a few minutes ago – “where is Cavan”.
There are two things that are strange about this query. The first is why they ended up here. Presumably in a moment of pure insanity I must have written about the place but I can’t think why.
The other strange thing is that anyone would want to know where Cavan is in the first place.
One of the few lessons I remember from my schooldays is that Cavan in on the Drumlin Belt. For those of you who don’t know what the Drumlin Belt is, it’s a glacial thing where the landscape is covered in little hills. Because there are so many of these hills, water can’t flow out of the place to you end up with hundreds of little lakes. As a result, Cavan is somewhat waterlogged and bumpy.
Finding Cavan is a reasonably simple exercise. All you have to do is to start in Dublin and drive North. Don’t drive too far because you’ll end up on the Giant’s Causeway. Though on second thoughts, the Giants Causeway is an interesting spot so you are probably better off forgetting Cavan and heading there instead.
If you are so determined to find Cavan though, you stop driving north when you reach the border with Norn Iron. Now it can be tricky finding the actual border, but a fairly simple rule is that the speed signs suddenly change from metric into real money. Leastwise, at that point change direction and head due west.
You’ll know when you reach Cavan. It’s all hills and lakes and very few people live there.
And it wouldn’t surprise me if the few locals that do exist have webbed feet.
