I have it on good authority that there is a FANTASTIC fish and chip shop very close to the Quays bar

Just letting people know that Joe and Anne Way will not be coming to Galway. Joes mother died 2 days ago. Very sad news and we will miss both of them very much

well we be could be lucky......as usual even at this late stage there are conflicting weather forecasts...all agree no rain friday.......but one or two are still forecasting 'light patchy rain' at times during saturday and thursday...but the BBC is not one these... according to them NO rain at all over the weekend ...so let's hope the good old BBC is correct....

...PS...according to hans and caren there is a very good fish and chip shop in galway..although i don't know if they do mushy peas.....

Could somebody please, PLEASE, take care of my parents for me...?! I can't keep an eye on them from a distance, so I'm counting on my BFF Ken to show them the way to enlightenment (or at least back to their hotel room in Galway).

Have fun!

In our mind we are with you and miss beeing with you , enjoy the weekend...dont´forget to walk....in the nature I mean .....and not only from Pub to Pub :-)
Elke and Sinikka, dont´forget to drink also hot ginger water and not only cold beer ...at least ones a day :-) OM

In bus to Galway. Bea and Judy sitting behind me talking in French.
Elke sitting next to me talking in riddles.I am sure it will make sense after a pint of Guiness.
