UCD award

Number one son again distinguishes himself. Here he is pictured with Ma and Da Deshoon showing his UCD high achievers award. He received the award in a fine ceremony in O'Brien Hall in UCD last Friday week. Bren and myself were the proud onlookers.

Blow me down with a feather.I never thought I'd see the day.Maybe there's hope for the world yet.Hip hip.........

Here are some pics of our fantastic day trip round the dingle peninsula last weekend.I hadn't been there since I was a tot.The scenery really is awe inspiring.What you can't see in the first shot are the hordes of wind and kite surfers in the background.They flew like birds.I was uplifted and jealous simultaneously.We then drove up the Connor Pass (pics 2 & 3) and got caught in a traffic jam on the way down (pic 4).

Spent the afternoon in Dingle drinking guinness and scoffing hearty seafood chowder.Heavenly day.Reminded me of similar pleasant afternoons spent with absent friends.You know who you are.

Nightlife in Tralee proved surprisingly good.Mr and Mrs Deshoon danced saturday night away with gay abandon!!Sadly, all good things come to an end.We returned to real life on Monday.
