Well the Paddy Wagon turned up on time and was not quite driven by a Leprechaun but an Irish man in a green top who had clearly kissed the blarney stone on more than one occassion! He didn't stop talking - giving us facts as well as useless information, jokes and stories. Sam loved it and thought the bus time was better than the places we visited!

The rope bridge was a great experience and I was proud of Sam for crossing it first. It wasn't too bad actually and the views of the Atlantic coastline were pretty spectacular.

The Giant's causeway was not as good as I had thought - expecting it to be more like the 12 Apostles in Australia but in fact the steps are all quite small - just loads of them.. the kegend is interesting - even if everytime I hear or read the story it is quite different. Heard Troy's version and that was almost believable!

The last stop was in Derry/Londonderry - otherwise known as stroke city so as not to cause any offence. which was a different experience.
