Joe - the super special solo show that Leonard will offer us in a small pub on Sunday evening was the best kept secret in the world.

OK I arrive on Thursday at 11:00 in Dublin. Seems like a few of us will be there around that time. Meet up needed before we board the coach :shock:

I will need everyone's phone numbers again as I lost my previous phone. I don't mind travelling on my own for three hours in a country where people speak almost the same language as me.

From the leonardcohen files.....

"I would like to welcome you to my home town, Galway, from the 19th (Thursday) to the 23rd (Monday) of September 2013. The weekend will consist of four walks. Two small walks on Thursday evening and Sunday morning, and two days walking on Friday and Saturday

I will answer all questions and provide more detailed information on the Forum
Joe"


we have 70-80 people most of who have never been there before arriving in galway over a two day period from various parts of europe and from america

so maybe we can now start a discussion with more details about the walks themselves, meeting points and times, plans for the evenings,and any other topics folk can think of...

and wasn't there talk about a cash payment to cover the coach hire being collected before the weekend?

over to you joe

Ken ~ :lol:

Seriously, you ought to work for The Onion [a satirical newspaper from the U.S.] ~ not sure if it's hard copy or only online.

"The Onion is an American news satire organization. It is an entertainment newspaper and a website featuring satirical articles reporting on international ... "

You're probably already familiar with it. It looks like it is only online.
