ash cloud madness

yup, we made it Ireland. HFX to Heathrow – relatively smooth sailing. Heathrow to Dublin?- not so. Flights cancelled due to volcanic ash cloud. So…underground to Euston station with guitars, bags and amps hanging from every limb. Then 5 hour train to Holyhead, Wales. Then 7 hours in Holyhead waiting to catching 3:00am ferry to Dublin. Arrived in Dublin at 6:30 am. Deboarded to epic taxi queue in spitting rain and cold. Sketchy/ cokey/ scary dude with a face like a catcher’s mitt hounding us the whole time and tried to get in the cab with us. Denied. Checked into hotel then off to radio at 9am for 11:30am interview performance on RT1. Back to hotel. Then … only then…. sweet sweet sleep. Four glorious hours of it. Then a show at Whelan’s. Rocked it to a raucous crowd of ex-pat Canadians and locals and then off for drinks at the Library bar. Tomorrow (or is it today)- Vicar Street opening for Jerry Fish. Onwards and upwards.
