Goodbye Dublin

We leave Dublin today after watching the Irish Rugby team thrash the Wallabies. They never looked even close to making a try which was a little disappointing. However leaving the stadium surrounded by very happy Irish fans a smiling – not a bad thing.

It was great fun and we were most impressed when the entire crowd (bar the Aussies of course) broke into song. The weather was wild and blustery and I didn’t envy the players or in fact half the crowd out in the elements. We were snug as bugs up high in the stadium, sheltered from it all and as I was wearing about 4 layers, even a little bit hot. Just call me Michelle In. Groover looked like Kenny with his hood well up.

They serve hot whiskey at matches with a slice of lemon and cloves – it was also very warming.

Today we head for Adare via Kilkenny and Glendalough – pronounced Glendalock here.
