When it comes to fantasy football we all hear several pieces of advice. Don't draft quarterbacks early as that position is deep. Make sure to get at least one top running back in the first couple of rounds as that pool will dry up quickly. Don't ever take a kicker or defense/special teams until the last few rounds. What about wide receivers?It's no secret that the NFL is a passing league. It seems every rule change over the past 5-10 years has been geared toward the benefit of throwing the ball and Doug Baldwin Jerseys putting points on the board with quick, exciting plays. In fantasy, we are slowly but steadily seeing a switch to point per reception (PPR) leagues. This puts further emphasis on pass catchers early in our drafts. Some also view receivers as safer picks early in drafts because they don't take the hits that running backs do and thus have a better chance at staying healthy over a long season. Throw in the fact that in most leagues you will start three WRs and a possible fourth in the flex position and we can start to understand why the position is so important.Antonio Brown will more than likely be the first WR taken in your league Richard Sherman Jerseys as he is about as steady as they come. There was a time when catching more than 100 balls in a season would raise everyone's eyebrows. Well, Brown has averaged more than 120 receptions over the past four seasons. That's just incredible when Kam Chancellor Jerseys you throw in that over that span he also averaged 11 touchdowns and 1579 yards. Some might want to debate that Odell Beckham Jr. should be picked first Jimmy Graham Jerseys overall but that seems like a reach. While it's true that he's dynamic and a highlight reel waiting to happen, he has only eclipsed 100 receptions once in his career (101 last season) and the addition of Brandon Marshall will give Eli Manning another true Marshawn Lynch Jerseys receiving threat. Mike Evans, Julio Jones, and A.J. Green are also sure to go in the first round of your fantasy draft.

James Fort Kinsale PDF Print E-mail

James fort was built on the site of an earlier fortification.

Designed by Paul Ive and begun in 1601 after the Battle of Kinsale, it was finished in 1607. It is a pentagonal Fort with Spear shaped earthen Bastions at the corners.  Inside a rectangular Bawn is a Stone Castle with two square towers.  Underground tunnels link the fort to the Block House, a Hexagonal Fort on the water’s edge. In later years, James Fort and Charles Fort were used to scuttle enemy ships by strategically positioning underwater chains across the Harbour 

 James Fort is located across the bridge from Kinsale, at Castle Park.  Go through the barrier for the Marina car park at the Dock Pub and follow the signs for James Fort.   You can also walk across the beach, Platters & Dishes (named after the area where the local gentry used to picnic), to get to the hillside it is on and from then on you can explore to your heart's content. There are plenty of buildings (ruins) to scramble around, and fine views of Charles Fort and the inner harbour.  It’s a great place to watch the boats go by.  It is in the process of being renovated, but for now it is completely free.

The ruins of Ringrone Castle stands like a sentinel now, guarding the River Bandon.  This ancient De Courcey Castle dates from c.1223   There is a Ruined church and graveyard nearby with interesting grave stones.  The Bullens family has the Skull & Cross Bones engraved on their tomb.  Pirates? or warning?
