This weekend, I went to Belfast for volleyball intervarsities, a tournament for all the college teams in Ireland. The first day was actually Thursday, but I missed this since I was in Dublin for the Naughton's Thanksgiving dinner. We went 1-5 in our pool play this day so we went to the lowest bracket for the tourney. On Friday, we had a pool play with 4 teams to determine the seeds for the actual playoff style ...

For a minute I thought she had been sucked through time to the distant past (if you’ve read any of Diana ...
... internet connection was dodgy yesterday so I am now a day behind as I type this in a café/Laundromat just off the square.
We needed dinner and when we were in Kinsale, the gift shoppe owner there recommended Crowleys Pub and we b-lined it to the pub.
