Hey Ronan



Had this one booked in my calendar since I saw it on internet screens smile



Can you tell us where to find these cheap tickets of which you speak. Ferries would be preferable and I'll probably be somewhere around Bristol... not that that's on a ferry route to Cork but anyway...



See you soon buddy smile

Eeep...

Sorry, I've been a bit rubbish and not booked flights to cork yet.

I'll get round to it soon, I promise.

Trouble is, I don't know whether to fly from Bristol or gatwick. I'll be moving soon, you see.

Hey lads,

Just a wee bit of help... Have a look at the individual flight websites for prices...

Aer Arann flys from Bristol, Belfast City and Cardiff to Cork.

Ryanair fly from Stanstead, East Midlands, Liverpool and Glasgow to Cork.

BMIbaby and Aer Lingus fly from Birmingham and Manchester to Cork.

Jet2.com flies from Newcastle

Air Southwest flies from Newquay.

Ferry prices...

Compare prices on directferries.ie, Stenaline.co.uk and irishferries.com

hug

Technically it's a "combustible" liquid, not flammable, so in theory could take it on the plane...

Somehow i doubt it would be that easy though wink

Hey, I'm heading down for clon but have to make it back up to dublin for 1 o'clock on sun (my grans birthday) the bus/ train could get me back from cork but can't seem to get from clon to cork that early on sunday. Any idea if a taxi would be ludicrously expensive/ take twelve years to get there?

So looks like Ed's not going to make it this year...sniff sniff, afraid he had to cancel.

The fire show has still not been confirmed, I'm trying to get the go ahead from the town council so I hope it works. *fingers crossed*

Ticket availability is going to be very available... and at the moment it looks like things will finish up sunday, but there may be a good few stragglers to visit the pub with...

We are currently looking for a few volunteers that could help us out over the weekend. We need:
- sound and light technician for the shows
- a show corodinator and stage manager
- a driver to go on random missions from time to time
- artists to decorate the place

Let me know if you can give us a hand with any of this smile

ps rumours of a french fire spinny invasion.... grin
