Hi Olaf

Thanks for starting this - at the the moment the 9th and 16th are good for me, 23rd might be out.

Note:- We can't go here anymore, as they keep falling down !

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-47021066

I enjoyed the trip last year down your way, so maybe you can think of somewhere else in Wexford / Waterford/ Cork.

Afew thoughts....


Mother Hubbards at Cashel, its good for an outing via Slieve Blooms Birr etc or southerly via Lismore etc

Mother Hubbards at Clarinbridge........its good for a foray into the Burren.

Kilmartins at Athlone and a route around Lough Ree.


Open to more ideas, I [and quite a few of us] have been in these ones and good for food.


Anyone for more ideas...?

All three dates work for me at the moment (fingers crossed no more relatives fall off the perch Surprised ).

It might be a bit of a spin for some, but the Beara peninsula, going over Caha pass and back over Healy pass is spectacular if the weather is good. Silvermines is also pretty good.

But I'd go anywhere at the moment.

We did do that last time so a very good idea....I don'tdo the PhotoRally, I use the bike for work and do a lot of miles anyway, 24,000 in 2018.

First choice:Cashel/Silvermines.

TheBeara Peninsula is another great spin.

All but Beara suit me.

If we do number 5 we might get the elusive Dai to join us.

1st choice would be slivermines

Any of the others suit, depending on weather etc. I don't fancy going up north if it is bucketing down, but closer to the day could make a weekend of it.

So take it I'll go with the majority.

Dai, if you go I'll go.
Got some time mid-march, so a 2/3 day Ireland trip would work.
Said it.

Chris; if they settle on 5 then yes, I will be able to make it. From the previous posts you've probably twigged that my problem is my shift hours. Most of my work is based in the good ol' US of A, so I work 15.30-00.00 UTC and get home about 00.45. Olaf's suggestion of the Cooley means that I can still sleep while they're getting up here. It's about an hour from me to Carlingford etc..

I am planning a camping trip for the weekend of 15-18 March. Likely to be at www.norevalleypark.com but I can be tempted to go elsewhere....

Chris, lots of choices, nore valley park is about 90 minutes from Dublin ferry port down the M1/M50/M7/M9 and its only about 4 miles off Junction 9/M9.

If you come to Belfast I am open to other places/options.

If the ride were to be the Cooley peninsula, then I would ferry to Dublin the day before and have 2 nights in Dundalk or Drogheda. Never visited the area before though, so they are only places I've chosen from the map.

Only previously visited Ireland for the NW200; sailed to Dublin and stopped just outside Derry. Will be over for the Rory fest this year though.

Can you just put my mind at rest: it doesn't rain in Ireland in March does it?

Cheers

No idea Chris......when there's a cloud we go sup Guinness, eat pudding or whatever.

I only rains twice a week here, first for four days and then for three days.

On a more serious note the eastern side is much drier and we do tend to look at the weather map before finalising the route. Comberjohn in our resident weather man,



Some times we go to the man himself to pray for sunshine
