Dublin

semi-overcast 61 °F

After sort of a hectic day of travel under two different airline tickets, we arrived in Dublin at 0520 this morning. The flights over were fine, but those who plan on traveling through Boston need to plan for about 3 hours to check in at the International terminal and go through security, especially if you want to stop at the Duty Free shop. It was a madhouse in Boston.

Of note was on the short flight (5 hours) from Boston to Dublin, the food in business class on Aer Lingus was excellent as was the service. It was a wonderful way to get to the Island. On board the flight were a bunch of my clients and many others, including two HS football teams who were going to play as part of the weekend of football in Ireland. The Irish are even more excited because the semi-finals of the Gaelic Football tournament are on Sunday. Both the Navy Notre Dame game and the Gaelic Football game are a sellout.

After a few hours of sleep, I had hired a 3 hour private tour for the afternoon. Promptly at 1400 Catherine and our driver showed up and we had a wonderful tour of Trinity College, including the Book of Kells and the highlights of Dublin.

A good nights sleep tonight, pick up the Hertz car tomorrow and off to Wexford during the day.
