Saturday 17th; to the Airport.

Clonakilty
Another fine sunny start to the day.  During the morning a drive to Cork Airport to pick up chum Linda who will be staying nearby for the coming week.  Midway along our route we stopped for a while to explore Clonakilty; childhood home of Michael Collins (of whom there will be more on a subsequent post);  source of the celebrated Clonakilty black pudding and venue for the globally unique "Random Acts of Kindness Festival", a festival which aims to celebrate the welcoming and warm hearted nature of the Irish people as a whole. The catchphrase of the July Festival is; "Cut the Misery and Spread the Positivity".

Silence for ages and then a bright and brilliant blogging burst. All very interesting too.

Thank you . . . there is much to come but I can not blog and do simultaneously; posts, consequently, must necessarily be disordered and subject to continual amendment and addition.
