That was a wonderful weekend. Galway is such a great city and Joe is such a great organizer.

The weather was in mint condition and there were no casualties to mourn about.

The music and the guinness were stunning and happy faces all around.

When I saw this packed restaurant on a Saturday afternoon, I officially declared the recession in Ireland as finished.

The whole lot of Ireland has grown into a complete fun park. I recommed to visit there regularly. The Dublin Event in 2014 is a must for every Cohenite.

Otherwise - Hasta la vista 2015.

We just had a fantastic time, and of course we knew we would... I have never had a bad walking weekend yet ( but we won't mention the football :)) Joe did a great job, we are all proud of him. The only thing I think he forget to tell us was to bring sunscreen :)

It was so great to meet you all again, thanks for the laughs, the songs, the presents, the chats. I am ashamed to say my dad was a Clare man and that was my first visit to Clare but it will definitely not be my last.

Love Tinders

Tried to add some pics but they are too big

What a lovely weekend! Galway is a beautiful town set in countryside that reminded me very much of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales and so felt very much like home to me. Joe had planned an excellent itinerary for us, and of course the company was amazing. Special thanks to the lovely Trish for her explanations of the rules and scoring system of gaelic football, without which the match would have been totally incomprehensible (instead of just slightly baffling :) ). Who would have thought of going to the west coast of Ireland in September to top up the suntan!
