A fish market in downtown Cork
After a bit of a sleep in, Tish, Olivia and Andrew travelled to Cork City to spend the day checking out the cosmopolitan city centre as well as some fantastic old architecture. Highlight was an indoor market which commenced trading in 1788, the same year Australia was settled by the First Fleet And included a fish market with some mighty strange looking fish Australia. After some retail therapy and a visit to the Cork tourist information office, we checked out some of Cork’s oldest pubs many of which have live music in the evenings. In the late afternoon we stopped at one of those trendy old pubs which had been converted from a pharmacy and indulged in a meat & cheese platter plus a salmon patty platter washed down with some sauvigon blanc.

Before long, it was time to head back to Watergrasshill where Andrew flew his drone in GPS Mode for the very first time sending the drone 700 metres from the house and of course out of sight. At around 9:00 pm we walked over to Kevin’s Father’s dance hall where we were provided with a history of Monday night dancing and large Kayleigh events which Kevin and

his brother would manage. On this particular night, there were two sets of 8 dancers being instructed by the teacher, one of Kevin’s Father’s pupils from 30 years ago. After the dancing, we headed back to the Kevin and Olivia’s place for some week earned zzzzz’s.
