Mayo

6 days bathed in sunshine, Per and I are sporting tans, helped no doubt by a day's sailing on the Atlantic. Ate like a king, drank like a lord and I'm still irresistible to young Irish ladies [with help from Per] so much so I'm going back again next month. The country is slowly picking itself up so the mood was good around town and the pubs. My nephew has been good enough to get himself a pub [and a very friendly young redhead barmaid] since I was last home and as it's out of town the words closing time are rarely heard. I haven't felt as good in years, Ireland is good for my soul. Did I miss anything at the weekend?

P.S. Bearing, Per brought you back some Irish crisps. Couple of pictures of young Per sunning himself will be up later.

Glad to hear you and Per are enjoying yourselves.

Re: a "Mayo suntan" - I thought that was what the phrase "A whiter shade of pale" was invented to describe.

These Irish crisps, have they got a Mr. potato head on the front?

No, I've defected to 'King' crisps due to slipping standards at Tayto. They are similar, but superior. Was over in your Alma's manor on Sunday PM, the tan is real, but of course won't last.

Ooh, they look a lot less greasy.  We all told you that tayto's were rubbish...

So was it the red that turned your eye away from tayto's then?

Do you mean Beál atha na Mhuice or Cill Lasrach, perhaps?

Pontoon, PM.

Mr Bearing, Tayto are red too or are you referring to a certain barmaid's hair colour perchance? I told you that in confidence.  Flights already booked for June 10th again, be back in time for pre-season, probably....

I only mentioned crisps!!!

A splendid spot indeed.

Any fish running this time of year?

The Bridge Hotel seems to have a slight facelift since I was last thereabouts  tryyryo.gif

That's where we had the do. No time for fishing but did see in the paper when I was over some tourist delayed by the ash caught an 104lb trout in the Corrib. He threw it back after getting the picture.

A 104 lb trout, eh?

Talk about fishermen tales...

(The British Isles' rod caught record for a salmon is only about 65 lb. Lough Conn is famous for monster pike - there's been at least one about 50 lb. I would anticipate that the average brown trout [no euphemism intended] would be around the pound mark.)

It's going to take a heck of a lot of radish garnish to get a 1 lb trout up to over a 100 lb.

Although if this were in the US, the radish would be chocolate coated, deep fried and served with triple whipped cream and a caramel fudge sauce, so achieving that huge leap in weight would be less of an issue.

Make that 11kg, blame the Guinness.

Fuck that's one big trout!

I think that is what is called a ferox trout
