Good news Pict. Also, I can draw some solace from the fact that you'll be getting up even earlier than me to make that ferry tongue.gif

Glad you're pleased. smile.gif But "earlier" be b******d - I'll be heading for an overnight B&B! tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif

I have 23 confirmed (not including me and Mrs TeDeum) plus some possibles (you know who you are). I have some biking mates here in Kerry who are interested in the rides out and social bits. By my estimation there are still 9 places left in the hostel and room for 500 in the camping field.

For anyone who remembers my earlier posting about Castlegergory only having 6 pubs now (one for every 50 of the population) there is good news in that one of the pubs which closed a couple of years ago after a fire is being re-furbished and expects be open for July.

2001 TDM. 1990 Serow. 2004 DRZ400.  3 bikes, four cylinders. Who needs more?

Limerick is about 85 miles direct on a good road (not very twisty) with a more interesting road back, if you wanted it, via Foynes and Tarbert.

Cheers MyDears, Made a note of those towns

Of little interest, but from 1984 - 1997 I travelled to S/Irl for 3 days every month. Dublin/Meath/Limerick/Shannon Ind/Cork/Waterford. Loved it, loved it

Booked with Stena line online, the discount code for the MCN thing is A002 (put this in the offer code box, it knocks off 20%).
Fishguard to Rosslare, slow boat out, fast ferry back, 75 inc credit card fee. Nice lady at Stena gave me the code, the middle figures are zeroes, not Os

If there is enough interest I will try blagging a group discount. Fishguard to Rosslare will prolly be the most popular route? Lettuce snow if yar interested. I am guessing around 10bikes will be the magic number.

Another Matlock money-saving tip, but a bit too late for me as I've booked already. You can now use Tesco Clubcard vouchers to buy your StenaLine ferry tickets with Tesco "Deals". Usually Tesco vouchers are worth 4 times their face value when used as deals against the undiscounted price. So you should get a return ticket for around 25.00.
