Quick News Flash from Dublin

No, in case you are puzzled, Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns are still firmly rooted in the Peak District; it is John and I that are, on a brief nostalgic trip to Ireland while Janet and co hold the fort at home.

I can’t show you any photos yet, having not taken any myself yet, and foolishly having forgotten the special camera connecting gadget necessary to download John’s onto my iPad. Needless to say he has taken masses.

We are in Dublin, staying in rooms at Trinity (TCD) where we both were as undergraduates and where we met. We are on a reunion of most but not all of the Trinity College ‘cricketing greats’ of the early/mid 1960s!

The sun has shone and needless to say we are having a very happy time, with lots of very good old friends. Our accommodation is fairly basic, costs more than our 5* holiday cottages in the Peak District but is most conveniently situated in the (mainly) elegant Georgian oasis in the centre of Dublin that is Trinity.

Tomorrow we drive down to Co. Cork for a few days of more luxurious but less social living. More of that later. And perhaps if I find the odd quiet moment before we go I will catch up on some of the news that I have been so bad at sharing recently, because there seems to have been so much happening.
