Excellent! Mind you my Welsh isn't half bad either :wink:

On the bus baby and it's Mullet plus two
Now that rugby's oldest bridesmaid has finally got hitched, she can cast a haughty glance towards Leinster, her high-living sister from Dublin, who, despite her immense beauty and vast potential, has trouble getting lucky.

Folks, I just discovered that the Galway Oyster Festival is on this weekend. So what you might ask - well the place is going to be packed, hotels are booked out and the paparazzi will be in town. What's a rugby gal to do.

Galway is a very small town - okay they call it a city but it's not a real city, bit like Kilkenny. Basically the place is too small to accomodate all the people in it on any given weekend - hence you gotta go to the nightclubs before 12 to get in - especially Halo. It's like that pretty much most weekends.

Just looking at times and sh1t, would I be dreaming to think that if I left Rathmines at 3pm, I'd make it to the sportsground for kick off?

Am seriously thinking of focking off an hour early tomorrow evening, but 3pm is the earliest I could leave without taking a half day, which I can't do!

Won't bother if traffic will be shite.

I'd say if you left at three on the dot, you'd probably have a reasonable chance. Depends if you can get ahead of the general traffic leaving Dublin early and also the Moate situation.

yep you'd definitely make it - It's only ever taken me longer than three and half hours a couple of times and that's usually bank holiday weekends.

Right, that's that then, I'm going down, and after a quick phone call looks like I may be spending the night too.
