Tipping about, sure...
Today has been my first fully indulgent day in my time in Ireland. The last few days I have been having fun but have also worked hard to give my friend (and host) Seamus a dig out with the various tasks he is into at the moment.
Today however, we all left the house to do our own thing. I have been on a journey out of Co. Wexford and into Killkenny, and particuallry the town of Inistigoe ("In -ish- Teeg"). I like Inistigoe more than most places in this country and whilst Galway and the west coast were spectacualr on the last visit, Inistigoe just has something about it. I stopped there today, perhaps my fourth visit these last three years and had a pint in the pub you can see here. As with everywhere in this country, chat and inquisitiveness were quickly forthcoming. A fine pint of Guinness and an easy drive home after being made very welcome in a friendly bar.
A fine day indeed.
