I had a chance to go 6 years ago, but the wife said I had to be home as due to give birth that week. Couldn't see a problem myself. Not had an invite since.

Sober the next morning - I think not. We always tried to race with a monumental hangover, it makes you want to the finish as fast as you can. Have had some good results using this method.

I havre just got back from Cork Week.
Wot a buzz!!!
Was out there from last Thursday till yesterday.

Now I am no WAFI but the evenings and the whole event was great.

Loads of RIBS out there too.
If any of you get the chance to go out in 2 years time then jump at it.

A tented village, about 1/4 mile long.
In this space are 10 bars!!
Most with live music, last act booked to start at about 2am each morning!!

I for one am going back but for the whole week next time.

Highly recomended.

And to the lad caught in the club workshop with 4 young ladies, yes four!
Well done chap

Regards
