Today I'm leaving for Ireland. It's a direct flight from Chicago to Shannon.
This trip is a tenth wedding anniversary gift to myself and my wife.

We are renting a car with a CD player and I will be taking Songbook along. I'm Looking forward to seeing this beautiful country while listening to my favorite musician of all times. We will be going to the Cliffs Of Moher, The Burren, The Dingle Peninsula,
The towns Of Dingle, Ventry, Kenmare, Killarney, Sneem and Killorgin.

Also, I'm very excited about listening to the traditional music played in the pubs. I heard that it can be very folky. The many Irish ballads tell stories through music.
I can't wait for this adventure, and to share
my Lightfoot music with the good people of Ireland, if I get the chance to.
I would love to listen to The Wreck, or IYCRMM or any Lightfoot music in a pub, next to a cozy peat fire with my beautiful wife and a dozen or so new Irish friends.
Well, off I go. I'll check this thread when I get back, and let everyone know how the trip went.
