RAW – 3 Days to go … Kinsale …

3 Days to go … start in Kinsale on Sat 18th.  Getting ready to pack tonight and prep for drive/ferry to Kinsale overnight on Thur.

Been too busy with last minute arrangements to even think about the cycle. Most of the questions I’m being asked are to do with the weather and distance – neither of which bothers me, it will be a relief to get started.

Spent last night & this morning writing a press release – not easy for a first time. Would prefer to take on a big hill any day! The rest of morning disappeared attempting to get my head around the Cycling Ireland process for registering an event – needed to enable supporters to join the cycle.  Oh my, oh my – no wonder the guys back in Killimer are struggling with it. Don’t get me wrong – the process is very good – just not designed for family & friends to join in for a few km of a ride.

Do help me out – Likes and Shares of this post add fuel to the tank!

Listening to Noel Hill & Tony Linnane. It reminds me of hearing Noel at a concert in West County, Ennis. His niece had dared him to play a tune on a tiny, tiny – i guess childs – concertina. Noel duly obliged and filled the room with wonderful music.  Have a listen click here – mighty stuff.

So – tomorrow – think will switch to Thin Lizzy – Live & Dangerous – the greatest album of all time imho. Any other suggestions ?
