    You'll love it. Watch the driving over there - they are mad!!

    Visit Cobh - nice little place - where the Titanic made its final port call.

    Went to Kilkenny this year and toured the South East 2 or 3 years ago.

    I`ve got a Zaffy while I`m over there Paul, picking it up from Cork airport.

    Looking forward to a bit of fishing too.

    You'd have been better getting a Land Rover - the roads down south are shocking. The driving is worse.

    You'll enjoy it round there Pete, once you get used to the local accents.
    Just don't forget you have to call in & kiss the Blarney stone whilst your there.
