It was about this time last year...

It was about this time last year when me and my trusty side kick went for a play, stopped for a few drinks with friends, listened to some music, met more friends, attempted playing a tin whistle, had a few more drinks (maybe should have stopped drinking at this point), listened to more music, had a few more drinks, had the craic with friends and somehow managed to find our house (they all look the same at 5 in the morning).  That was just one magical evening during the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉirann here in Ennis last year and as...

What to do, what to do, what to do??

What to do, what to do, what to do??

Tired of talking about Russia, Brexit, politics? Why not go to the Zoo?!  What a great day out that includes fun, learning and best of all, animals!  We highly recommend Dublin Zoo, the Bronx Zoo, Woodland Park Zoo (in Seattle) and Utah's Hogle Zoo to name just a few!  There is so much to do at the zoo!  Besides, at some point in your life someone has probably said that you belong in a zoo so why not give into your wild side and have a zoo adventure today!

These things happen all the time to all of us; maybe when we’re driving, at home, at a party or out for the evening when a song just grabs you and takes you to a wonderful place that is completely magical.  The other...
