The french word eau has a higher ratio of vowels to consonants than oiseau (but a smaller number of vowels ...)
If you are just looking for a high number of vowels, words like

Donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellschaftskapitänsmützenherstellerwitwenwohnungstüren or similar have a high number of vowels just because they are long ...

Well, in German, a wet and boggy patch of land on a Jupiter moon would have to be called

That even beats the French 'oiseau' (bird)

Blimey, that's why Aer Lingus is so expensive. Fer Latio would enjoy budget status.

Whilst we ponder facetious and antidisestablishmentarianism, which word in the OED enjoys the most vowels, and which word enjoys the highest ratio of vowels to consonants?

Dearest Fibulamatic, under the Registration of Airline Businesses act (within the confines of the European Harmonisation of Air Traffic Regulations 2003 and 2004), airlines now pay a surcharge based upon how many vowels there are in their name or "Trading Style", as they call it - as a proportion of the total number of letters in the name. Aer Arrann gets a right caning for over-using the letter A and a for using a whopping 4 vowels out of 9 letters. You don't have to count the space(s) since the 2004 amendment in case you were going to ask. Unfortunately, these charges have to be passed on to the consumer.

I am always happy to help.

My preference: Midleton more important than Beamish more important than Blarney (been there ...)

A city tour would be nice, will take part if there is one (but won't be complaining if it isn't).

Hope you had a good drive home from Portaferry!

There are indeed buses from Cork to Dublin, check this site. You could also take a train. A bit more expensive, but also more comfortable (and with a toilet!).


I will check whether we can arrange a tour of Beamish (appointment only, so will have to call them). Other possible daytours are Blarney (castle and stone) and Midleton (Jameson Distillery). Not everyone has transport though, so I think we can leave it to the individual to decide what they want to do. There is a regular bus service to both Blarney and Midleton.


Another regular feature of Eurogathering are city tours, and I will check out whether these are available from the information centre. Who would be interested in such a tour? If Groningen is anything to go by, we need about 10 people to keep that affordable, so enter your name if interested.

Letty, is there a chance to park my bicycle safely at your place during the weekend?

What about the floorspace? Is it booked already?

Btw, as Aer Lingus does not offer the flights Munich to Cork after March 06, I will fly to Dublin on Thursday - I'm not sure yet whether I will sleep in Cork or in Dublin, that depends on when I really get out of the Airport, the bus timetable (not available yet for May) ...

A tip for car hire: Enterprise. They will also pick up from the airport, or deliver a car there. Give them a ring, a weekend in the cheapest car (Fiesta or similar) should cost you no more than about 50 euros. Sometimes they have a weekend special for 27 euros!

Just got back from a week in Cork.
I selflessly worked quality assurance on Beamish & Murphy's stouts. The pints were beautifully kept and poured. All I had to do was drink 'em and ask for another.
The city is impeccable and ready for us to visit.
Car hire at the airport was 99 euros per week for a Corsa.
Visted Macroom, Killarney, Skibbareen, Clonakity (De Barras Folk Club in the main street), Tralee, Bantry, Youghal & Kinsale. The South-West awaits you.

Both, Snuffy. Both areas have been turned into agreeable living quarters. But the 'Kloster-Brauerei' (Alter Markt) was reopened a few years back. It doubles as a pub, and you can even go downstairs and look at the cauldrons. I doubt they'd let us have a session there, though, and it's too loud to talk even without music.
