Thomas Molloy - Irish Independent

PROVIDENCE Resources, the oil and gas exploration company, expects to resume drilling off Ireland in the near future, chief executive Tony O'Reilly said at the explorer's annual meeting in Dublin yesterday.

Providence hinted that it would soon announce drilling at fields in Irish waters such as Spanish Point, Kinsale, Dunquin, Dalkey Island or Dragon.

The mist on the hills outside lifted as we faffed, and by the time we finally made it onto the road the sun was out again. The fields round about were pretty fantastical. We've become blasé about the buttercups, but today there daisies densely packed around white ponies, and the elderflower is just beginning to explode in the hedges.
