Flag of Ireland  , County Limerick,
Friday, May 14, 2010

Onwards to Limerick, on our route to Dublin was another topsy-turvy adventure. So unremarkable was Limerick that we didn't once again feel the need to park. We imagine everyone speaks in limericks though. Perhaps we can regret missing out on that. However, they did have random ponies and goats wandering around.

The freeways here are surprisingly great and really wiiiide. But we decided to go off the beaten path to fin some old towns, there has to be something here other than big, new, deluxe farmsteads. After a short meander about we saw a sign pointing down a little road saying *something* Castle. Finally something old to see! Following the road down we noticed it getting rougher and rougher. Pot-holey and muddy. Determined to see this so called "castle" we kept driving. It did not get better. We got lost in the mountains, up what turned out to be old logging trails and they were rough!

We think Bigwig’s fancy new wheel alignment is very, very much now an unalignment. Boo.

No castles.

To salvage the day we decided to turn into a town called Emo to slate our need for a laugh. We had a fun time posing like emos by town signs. To be honest, Emo has turned out to be the nicest little town we have come across so far! Not at all depressing as the name might imply.

We wanted to spend the night in Emo simply to have bragging rights but the sun was still very much in the sky (although behind clouds). So we turned out to drive in to Dublin were we found a nice sheltered park in the outer suburbs.
