    ... I arrive close to 11pm. I sit down, and am thinking when Chris finishes this pint we'll leave, when one of his coworkers sets down a stout in front of me! Ok, well I guess we're going to be here a bit longer. We stay past 11. It's nice to get to know some of Chris's coworkers, and put faces to names. Chris, I know has had a good time; he's been wanting to get together with them for quite some time. We get home about midnight. The kids are asleep and soon so are ...

    ... and we were - they let us in almost 10 mins before it “officially” opened and we were the first ones up to the castle. I was so proud of my kids. Being there early and beating the crowds made seeing the castle and the beautiful grounds even more special. (Ford’s parents came later in the day and couldn’t get to kiss the stone.

    Continuing on we arrived in Cork for the night. We didn't have any excursions planned so a quiet meal in the hotel's restaurant and a relaxing night was a welcome way to finish the day off.

    ... it's not like it's going to kill you. We walked around the castle and up through it to the top to kiss the stone, they had to hold onto you while you lean back to kiss it. What I thought was really cool is that around the gardens of the castle they have an area that is filled with heaps of poisonous plants, some were only a little poisonous but some were inside cages so you couldn't touch them. There was the marijuana plants, opium plants, poison ...

    ... introduced Lauren Casey, a singer-songwriter. She sat down at the piano and started to “sing”, or should I say screech. What a dreadful, high-pitched voice. We had noticed that the glass in one of the windows of the observatory for’ard had been smashed into tiny smithereens, and we wouldn’t have been surprised if Ms. Casey’s tortuous high notes had done it. When she commenced singing the dreadful Celine Dion song My **** Will Go On, ...
