As a former student of history I decided that another factor to consider in my road trip around Ireland could be to look at Irish history. Places mentioned in history could then be added to the itinerary. During my preliminary reading in the last week, I have decided that Kilkenny would make an excellent candidate. Kilkenny would also help with the trip, by car hire, Ireland as it ‘evens’ up the route. Currently I have Dublin as the start finish and Galway, Limerick and Cork but these would leave a bit of a hole between Dublin and Cork. Kilkenny would help plug this gap. More soon.

I have been fairly busy with one thing or another; caught up with some friends and trying to work on a few creative writing projects some of which require some background research. I also got given another assignment by an online website-unfortunately it is an unpaid piece but keeps the hand in. All of which means, however, I have not had a chance to look at events for the possible car hire Ireland road trip. I did however find a 1p whilst sifting through my paperwork. What is the significance? Well, you may simply dismiss this as new age phooey or whatever but it turns out this was not just any penny, this was a penny from Eire. Sure, a coincidence, but still one of those strange coincidences that get you musing on whether there really is more out ‘there’. I want to believe. I want to believe this road trip is meant to be so, hopefully more next week when my schedule looks a little less hectic writing and event wise.

Currently been busy with helping sort out some old paperwork, which was long overdue as well as some other business to attend to. One such piece was an article for the Bleacher Report on football as well as a few applications for a few things. With the weather promised to turn nasty, indeed as I write this the threat of rain looms lurch in the form of a perma-gloom, some garden tending also called.

All of which means I have had few moments to have a look at possible events to add to the Ireland road trip, although the brief looks I have managed to have have not presented any opportunities. So far Rhod Gilbert in Dublin is it! However, just looking at the route, the idea is to kick of and end in Dublin, car hire Dublin, and visit at least Galway, Limerick and Cork. The meat that needs to be added to the plans bones is events, that way the direction-clockwise or other-will become clear. Ah well, hopefully next week can have a more in depth event hunt!
