Has you've probably noticed by now, me, cheekyads and uk13er are coming to the meeting, then carrying on till Thursday, so if any of you Irish based lads know of, or maybe could find a home stay/house share for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for us that would be much appreciated, we're quite willing to pay, we're not looking to be scrounges.
I was speaking to a woman friend that used to live near me and moved over to Ireland who has a big involvement with the Armoy races, apparently the practice session is Friday 27th and racing Saturday 28th, so we just miss out on that, but she says the run up to the races will probably start on Monday 23rd so there's a possibility she maybe able to let us stay in the paddock.
All in all it would be nice to have a couple of options before we come over, although personally I would prefer a house share/home stay just like we do for the TT :thumbup: it's much less hassle :D

booked the Friday outbound holyhead / dublin 11.30
return monday dublin at 2-15

happy days
Finally got myself and Big Bro sorted. Original plans have changed slightly cause the ferry times were rubbish to land down south. Now I think we will be on the same boat as Ali on the way out. Holyhead at 11:30 :thumbup: We are going to do a slow rout up and do a little exploring up through the middle of wales on Thursday , stop the night somewhere near Holyhead and then have an easy morning packing the tent up and jumping on the ferry.
Finally! :D :Dancing2: Sorted. Probably going to stick a tent up at Skerries too as it's going to be a little stinky and squashed with all you lot in there :sick: :sick:
My new ride is a bit of a Howler and I love to make her Squeal

will be 1.40pm before we land Dublin and then at least 2hrs before we are going past Larne. what time is the Toni babe arriving?

also is it better to go the other side of Lough Neagh via Cookstown for good roads?

closer to the time we can tie down meeting times for a wee spin up lads.

@al..the roads up the back of the lough i think we will be using them on the sat when we are heading back up to base..some nice roads that way but you have to hug the lough and on a friday you will be hitting a lot of traffic.

OK Rob, Kermit now has a contingent.
Me, Edward and WellGroomed Andy plus:
1290 Andy (was Multistrada Andy) and Macca from Kent. They are coming up to me in Hexham on Thursday.

We are all catching the Friday 13:30 Cairnryan ferry to Larne. Arriving 15:30. The two cheekys and uk13iker should be on the same boat.

Now, the Kermit contingent are all old. Macca is very old. We're not hard up for a few bob and we like our comforts. Duck-down duvets, lightly oiled Filipino virgins for that after ride massage. You know, that sort of thing. What do you suggest? If there anything suitable at the Skerries or should we look in Portrush? Local knowledge would be welcome.

And another two. So now there's 7 of us. The Kent mafia and the country gentlemen of Tynedale. We're booked in the Golflinks Hotel, just a stagger down the road from the Skerries, for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
