... les exploits. Pour Crean ce fut juste un travail.

Une fois ce travail fini il retourna un certain temps dans la Navy, puis suite à un accident il prit sa retraite et ouvrit ce petit pub dans son village d'enfance. Il paraît qu'il ne parlait jamais de ses aventures antarctiques, et au lieu d'être célébrés ses exploits (effectués sous pavillon britannique) furent oubliés après l'indépendance de l'Irlande.

Sachant tout ça, il fallait absolument que je m'y arrête. Les ...

... sea cliffs on very narrow, winding roads. It reminded me of driving in Smokerise; the road is only 1.5 cars wide in places! For someone to pass both cars have to pull over on a mostly nonexistent shoulder and squeeze by.

Back at the Greenes, we chatted with Tom over some tea and coffee when we arrived back. Even though he isn't a big drinker, he enjoyed the carlsberg beer gift for driving us to Portlaoise. We had some good chats before he went out to finish work. Lynn and I gathered our stuff, scrounged up some random stuff for ...

... it gets closer to the music starting, the pubs fill up and there certainly doesn't seem to be any limit to the number of people that can squeeze in. And many are just there to drink and visit, with very little attention paid to the music. It's a good thing we were told that the Irish just do that...we probably would have started an international incident if we'd said "shhh". One night in Dingle, we had a private concert of Lumiere, 2 women and a guitar that ...
