Wouldn't it be great to travel all over Ireland even europe, tours in each place with local knowledge of historical value, in comfort and security with your friends neighbors even your own pets in comfort of your own home.... well close but even better with a home on wheels 'caravans camper vans etc. Why not join your local Irish Camping & Caravan Club check out the website www.iccc.ie. I bumped into the Leinster group that stayed over in Longford Town, inside the former Army Barracks in town, which was organised and ran successfully by local club members David and Barbara Smyth, which included tours. I bumped into Marie and Bernard Clarke in St Mel's Crypt where they were enjoying a cuppa after Sunday morning Mass, I took their photograph and chatted for a minute I put my foot right in it, knowing they were Dubs, Marie asked who you shouting for I said without regret ye won enough and not Dublin, they laughed and said they are related to the lad that plays in goals for Dublin team, I Thought feck, but they were nice to me as we quipped about it, they explained that they were part of the touring campers. Most had left when I got around to visiting the campsite they were all sound people, and love what they do I am not surprised, they travel a lot and not just Ireland in great security and safety, since insurance was brought in over forty years ago they have been no claims and no trouble. Ordinary folk that enjoy touring in good company, musicians dancers if they don't go into local entertainment they make their own, with also secured kids groups and teenage groups and supervised activities, also a bonus for locals is that they spend monies, was a genuine surprise and pleasure to have met them however briefly.

Like something out of a disaster movie or the result of a villain in marvel movies, it was some accident or failure at Fishertown that left half the Town without power effecting shops and traffic lights, it was every man for himself at the traffic lights thankfully no word of any accidents. Staff and family at the most popular takeaway in Longford town Luigis you can make out some relaxed faces and my ever increasing baldness. Spar shop in darkness and post office and bruces all effected
