... on the wall there which told us this was where the Convention of Druim Ceatt took place, which was when all the clan chiefs and kings etc went to settle disputes and issues back in around AD575! Epic. After wandering around there a while we headed back down and went into the hotel to warm up a bit on the couches in the restaurant. We had an idea that what we had found wasn't really the castle ruins, so we had a bit of a chat with some bar staff and a chef and ended up getting ...

... the wind was so strong! But we made it back home, where the guys had finished sorting out the song they were playing with, so we ended up getting a bit of a jam happening with them. They were both very good guitarists and Darren gave us some tips, lessons and exercises we could practice to strengthen our fingers, and I even learnt a couple of chords in the DADGAD tuning. They showed us the song they were working on, which was quite beautiful. Ciaran has a very nice voice, and it ...
