I hope this is slang for "arrived" and he hasn"t been hurt (he"ll be hurt enough when Laxie"s kids take significant pieces of him at the poker table)  :)

Besides me doing my party trick of falling asleep in a chair, it was great to see Dawn & Timothy again, top people.

Just a wee note about Glenn"s (Bigfella) geogrpahy skills.

We were out side having a cigarette and there was another man outside as well.

"were you at the races today" says the man
"No, we are going tomorrow" says Glenn
"Hope it keeps fine for you I was there today but I gave to go back tomorrow" says the man
"Where are you from" says Glenn
"Russia" says the man
"What part of Ireland is that in" says Glenn

Priceless

Yesterday was a great day at Punchestown, great company, good Guinness, priceless.

More detail when I get more time, but a few observations

Thanks to Leigh who"s incisive tips and advice were invaluable.  :o

My pleasure.   ;D

And if anyone else would like horse racing tips for horses that will be leading with 100 yards to go, yet finish in 2nd place (I think I picked 3), oh and a horse that passed the finishing post first, but had forgotten to bring the jockey along for the ride, then feel free to pm me.   ;D

3 big munster fans pile into the car for our rushed journey home so we can catch the munster match in our local pub. Said match is on in dublin. That"s where we just were. We plan well. Not. Sigh. On top of that the lads have taken a wrong turn and we are now lost. Marvelous. Ger is on the phone to england for directions to our house as i type. We run good. Lol

So we arrive in Dublin a few hours after Ger and Glenn on the Thursday night.  Don"t ever give Ger a 3 hour head start in a drinking session...he won"t last the pace.



Luckily Glenn was still able for a laugh.  That"s Mr. Laxie with him.  I"m behind the camera. 








Off to Punchestown on Friday and we were spoiled rotten for the day.  Cheers Glenn!!!







Don"t ask Leigh for horse tips.  His are still running...........or shot.




All in all a great day!!!

The trip back to Knocknagree only took an hour more than it should have in the end.  No help from the phone calls to England and they were convinced my google maps were wrong, so I threw down for a nap and left them at it.  Saturday was tame enough after Munster losing the match, but we more than made up for it on Sunday.  Will let Ger fill you in on the rest. 

Oh yeah.  Denis is NOT gay.

Just in the door after a great weekend. The racing was a financial disaster, even with Leigh's "expert" help. However the Guinness was superb. The rest of the weekend was a drink fuelled time of excellence, the inmates of the village that is called knocknagree are a great bunch of people. We found out a few things.

The live band in Killarney were miming

Tex never passes 25mph when driving

Woop woop is looking well if a little shaven

The Guinness in Berties is superb

I am getting too old for all day drinking (it'll pass)

Munster got spanked

Tim cooks a mean fry up

Never put rice down the sink

We were not lost, we just took the scenic route

Yanks don't know squat about colours


Oh and Denis is not gay
