It's Sunday and I've just had a week off to try and get caught up on things around the house. Making sure we're up to date with bills, correspondence and supplies nothing to exciting. Wednesday was my Birthday I took Carol shopping at Trafford Center. The week went by fast we were so busy but didn't really do a whole lot if you know what I mean?

As promised here are a few pix from our trip to Ireland

Our first night in Ireland we stayed in Dublin and after a long walk around the city we had dinner at O'Neil's (Where this image was taken) just inside the area know as Temple Bar. After we did of course go the pub called the Temple Bar. Guinness and Murphy's depending on what part of the Ireland you are in are dietary staples - Guinness taste best on tap in Ireland and is not the same any where else.

Entrance to Dublin Castle with is a Government offices today

Lismore Castle - only gardens are open to the public as the Castle is is a very exclusive resort type accommodations where people can spend there holiday.

this is a Market street in Dublin - not sure which day this was, our last day was extended as the ferry back tot eh UK was canceled for weather and we had to wait till the later one. We ended not getting home till about 2:30 in the morning. After Scotland and Ireland along with another business trip to Germany and Carol's trip to the States this week was good to hang out around the flat and keep it low key
