Chris, Room for one more ?

Booked the ferry and e-mail Dorren for the camp site.

Put me down for the Saturday Meal and a XL tee-shirt.

Got to be back Wednesday, so only there for 3 nights.

Realy looking forward to seeing southern Ireland, in the past only seen as far as

Absolutely - if they'd like to roll up with their details..... dry.gif

(Apologies if already posted, but there's been a confusion of threads, and some changes.)

NOTE Would anybody who hasn't already done so be careful to check their ferry departure times - Stena Line services have seen some changes to accommodate higher fuel costs (increases in crossing times - less welly, I guess - and 15-20 mins changes in some departures) DON'T MISS YER BOAT!!

If we've got time, yes, but its where we put the bikes, I will have a load just strapped to the back of the bike, so I would have to keep an eye on it.

Hartside... what time are you getting the ferry any chance of meeting us up in Dublin ?

Just booked into the Youth Hostel not far from Fishguard (Pwii Deri) for the night of 4 Jul. Takes the pressure off getting there with a very early start and possible/probable rain. My last two visits to Wales have been damp to say the least! Thought about camping but didn't fancy packing up for the ferry in the rain! This should ensure that the weather stays dry for anyone else travelling on the 5th! tongue.gif

my ferry gets into larne at 06:50 and i will b running doon fro the norf rotflmmfao.gif

Skerries is norf o dublin and as im driving doon from the norf it would be silly of me to pass and come back up. it seems easy to get to from the m1 anyway.

dandy reckons there is still service roads for access even after the race circuit is closed so give it a go lads i am sure its gonna be well worth a visit. i have my camera ready clapping.gif

will pm ya my mobile number ring and we can meet somewhere at the skerries hopefully with dandy and minty hippo and dapleb as well good.gif
