Having issues with WiFi at hotel, so I’m sitting in O’Neill’s Pub having dinner and a Guinness using their WiFi. Only, their sessions only last 20 minutes, so tody’s postings may be broken up. Tried to go to Guinness Storehouse tour this afternoon, but they had a bomb scare and closed the place. Will try again when I’m back in Dublin in 10 days time.

Tomorrow I’m off to Waterford County and the dreaded rental car. Everyone says to make sure I get the maximum insurance-not the most reassuring of prospects, but I will forge onward.
Just as I am due to fly out to Scotland, the Queen Mum is due to arrive here. This will be the first time in 100 years that the Monarch has officially visited Ireland. You can imagine the hub-bub happening around Dublin in preparation for this momentus occasion. There were cleaning and polishing Dublin Castle on my visit earlier today.
My time’s up, so until next time.
