Usually I visit Ireland at least once a year to catch up with friends. I lived there for tree years moving back just before the millennium. I did not get around to visiting Ireland in 2012, a trip was long overdue.

As you see, I didn’t even make it to Dublin, so a good reason to return to Ireland soon.
