Re: Presale to Sligo

Amazing, is n't it ? Some people I know say "how could you spend over 100 Euro to see Leonard Cohen AGAIN ? But I would nearly spend as much NOT to see Michael Flatley, yet his first concert is sold out and they are ( vigorously ) advertising a second . No accounting for tastes, is there ? ;-) Logi...

Re: Presale to Sligo

I've enclosed a link to some photos i took in Sligo today. The Garavogue is great and couldn't be any more central. Whoever chose the b&b opposite the entrance to Lissadell House was very clever.I can only assume that most people will have to be bussed in- it's a really beautiful area. http://www.f...

Someone volunteered to take it of us [so one might presume they knew what they were doing, right?]. I thanked him and handed it off, he took a couple photos just to be sure. Whe...
