An early morning before we hit-the-sack. “McNeills on Howth” (the Top House ) where we are staying had a 5 member old blokes band (just a little younger than me but looked way older and definitely unfitter!!) playing music from the 1970’s that was loud, good rock and dance music that had us up on the floor. Jane, again was going off, cutting up the dance floor while I made sure I wiggled enough that I didn’t fall over. The sunshine had us up a little over 5 hours later that we hit the deserted streets and explored for a few hours before checking out a place for a cuppa.
