    ... Redhead Convention. A few years ago I would have qualified as a red head, or at least a bit of a ginger bearded boy. Nowadays the colour is waning.



    In typical Irish style the festival is largely blarney. The main event seems to be the Carrot Tossing Championship! Still, I expect there will be some decent music and good craick.

    ... a coach full of oldies to kiss the famed stone that apparently bestows eloquence to those who kiss it. Kissing the stone is quite a regimented routine, line up, chap on your left holds you while you lay precariously down holding each hand on the bars each side of the stone, shuffle forward with him supporting you and kiss the stone backwards and upsidedown.
