Thread Name: Finally I made it to the Belfast area
Subject: RE: Finally I made it to the Belfast area
Ella, lovely to see you again. And to hear from your partner in crime, Fib. I started a thread about the Shepherdstown crowd making their way across Ireland and my trip through the North, when 9/11 and my emergency planner job went tilt-a-whirl. Now I've switched to the Vocational Managers job at the Harpers Ferry Job Corps Center (and scads more $) with some time to myself.

I loved the North, the Glens, the Causeway, Carrick a rede (do not eat anything before attempting to cross the rope bridge or you WILL feed the fish) etc. The same crowd is looking to repeat sometime in late August, a landing in Dublin, a side trip to Scotland, a ferry back to Larne, a fling at the Fleadh, and then slip out from Shannon. As you might remember, we are a danger to only ourselves (and some slow Irishmen) but I expect some twenty on the trip, with the usual mix of musicians and cloggers (and a couple of Scottish Country dancers). We Moore's must plan to get together, with something more than a drum thump.

Duty calls and I must away...
