Thread Name: Loughstock 4-score (N. Irish meet)
Subject: RE: Loughstock 4-score (N. Irish meet)
I am from Virginia where it does get kind of cold sometimes but the skies are generally sunny and bright. I was kidding, guys, I know it's going to be cold and probably wet in Northern Ireland in February, and a lot of my friends think I'm nuts for going at such a time (they mostly head the other way - towards the Caribbean Islands or Mexico, and would only think of going to Ireland in Spring or Summer). But I am hoping Barholm is well heated and that there will be nice roaring fireplaces in some of the pubs. I have been in Scotland in February and am figuring N.I. would be much the same, climatewise at that time of year. Even though I'm a born and bred southern girl, I think I can handle it.
