Just a quick word to say thank you to the Harp boys for organising the trip yesterday. Above and beyond the call of duty!!
Maybe just maybe the next time in Kielys....."Mine's a Harp".

One word though, could you not have organised better weather!!!! Criiiiiiiiiikey!

A great trip, thanks a million to all involved in the organisation of it and thanks to Harp lager, a beer which I'll drink again after realising yesterday how nice it is!!

The Ulster crowd couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming, they're going to be bringing a big crowd to Lansdowne on NYE and we should all go out of our way to return their hospitality.

To top off the night, the absolute legend that is Dennis Hickie approached our table in Eddie Rockets, Donnybrook, at 2am and insisted on paying our food bill as a thank you for coming up to Belfast to support the team. He was already pretty high in my list of legends, he's just jumped to the top!!

Re the little matter of the game, what a performance from the boys, in what were horrific conditions. The wind was unbelievable, and the rain wasn't much fun either!!

I second that emotion - top trip lads, and the added "magical Mystery Tour" thrown in at the end was great; didnt know what was going to happen next :wink:

Did we leave anyone behind?

Classy. Sounded like it was deadly fun. Hopefully NYE will be as good.

Thanks Thanks Thanks. Great. Pity I too headed home and passed up the rockets. I got drenched waiting for the cab that never came and ended up on a Nitelink with a driver who made up for ours by not taking any money from me as I'd no change - oops actually I do but it's sterling......

That's top class of Denis to buy the food in Eddie Rockets. Great trip even if I do have bed sores from sitting on the frekin' bus for 8 hours while the driver went round and round in circles....and that was only on the way from the toll bridge back to Kielys at 2am!

Thanks Lads!

Was a fantastic trip!

Except for getting lost. Repeatedly. And the weather. And missing last call in Kiely's. And the tryless 6-all draw (sorry, 6-all THRASHING!)

Biut what a delicious beverage that Harp is.

Can't wait for the trip to Thomond! :D

I'd like to echo that praise and to thank all concerned. :clap:

'Mark Thatcher' at the wheel of the bus really was a bit special though wasn't he? An hour after leaving Kiely's, heading for Belfast mind, for some reason we were still in Wicklow. Nothing really surprised me after that to be honest... :lol:
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
