"How much your friends in Ireland must be enjoying your pleasure on this occasion"

Once more my bold resolve to blog more often has weakened and failed, even though procrastination should be at an all time high. Surprisingly, it is not.

I thought I would blog, mainly in pictures, the end of my UK trip. It was a wonderful trip, not least of all due to my misadventures, but also it was wonderful spending time with my extended family, particularly my Nana, with whom I spent many an evening just sitting quietly with, watching telly and chatting. Whilst in Ireland we did a lot of driving and saw a lot of the country which was lovely, as well as taking in some nice pubs and spending time with the family. Needless to say there were many tears shed as well all left Ireland, though hopefully it will not be so long between drinks and we will be back there again soon. More on my last week in England will follow shortly, but for now here are some of my favourite pictures from Ireland.

Beautiful! Who is the bronze bird with her breasts out?

Thanks FC! That is Molly Malone, who wheeled her wheel barrow, through the streets broad and narrow etc...It is no wonder she met a grim end, she really should be wearing a scarf.

I heard that locals call her 'the tart with the cart' (one of my clients told me).
Gorgeous pics!

Yes I think my Dad may have called her that! Sadly we didn't get to see the "Floozy in the Jacuzzi" as that monument (Anna Livia fountain) has been removed from O'Connell street.
