Anyone in Ireland (East coast) fancy a Rib Run

Anyone out there in the East Coast of Ireland near Dublin/Louth area fancy getting together for a run out on the ribs??
I'm pretty new to the scene (bought my 5m rib last year but have stuck mainly to Inland Lakes as my mates have crappy speedboats)
The closest myself and my wife have got to open water is up in Carlingford Lough, but am nervous about venturing further without company - Does anyone fancy it?????????
All experience levels welcome

Sorry Guys, I've been away on Holiday the past few weeks.

Got the rib out today and cleaned her down - I'm giving the motor a service next week so will be ready for hitting the water.

What about meeting in Howth? Then again - I'm based in Trim so can travel.
