Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys wow Moneygall!

A flavour of yesterday's celebrations in Moneygall - In hopeful anticipation of a presidential visit. This song by Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys is very infectious and great fun - It can be heard in full on my previous posting.

There's no one as Irish As Barack O'Bama!

Just saw these guys play in Moneygall this afternoon - What have I started? ;-)

Paddy Anglican auf Deutsch!

This from ZDF (German TV) who recently visited Moneygall to research the Obama story. I was dubbed for the ocassion which some may see as an improvement ;-) Personally I prefer subtitles but I suppose I will have to wait for French TV! I always did like their subtitled films ;-)

So you think you're a good driver!

I did - until about an hour ago! At the end of a long day which included a return trip to Dublin and a prolonged period in a stuffy boardroom at HQ in Rathmines, I collected our son from after school club en route home.  My car is a bit of a tip and contains a plethora of just in case items. Alongside the tow-rope, jump-leads and a myriad of torches I carry a small library of tools of the trade including a book of 'Occassional Offices' (Services and liturgies for various 'special' events). On the way home he dug this book out of the glovebox and started to read it - no harm in that I thought - until I saw what page he was carefully studying: "PREPARATION FOR DEATH"!
