    But in Ireland it was until a couple of years ago a mess.

    My first (late) wife was a Kerry girl so I was over there quite often, I always thought the road signs, then in miles, should have had the word 'thereabouts' after the mileage shown

    From Kerry, great mate.
    But yes the Irish mile is open to question on many an occasion.
    We have seen one with a milage on it, go ten miles down the road and it is still the same.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Yes she was, won 'Rose of Tralee' international competition in 1965, a neighbour had entered her, unbeknown to her, but she had been single when he put her name in, but in the meantime she had married this lucky guy, so after the crowning they discovered she was married, so had to step down, as apparently as soon as your married in Ireland (Eire) you're supposed to get pregnant and you cannot have a pregnant Miss Rose of Tralee on a world tour, and you couldn't say you would practice safe sex, as that would go against the Churches teachings as sex is for prorecreation and not pleasure, how little they know!

    Have you ever been to Tralee Ivan ? . Been there a few times . Was about 30 minutes in a car from a small port at the mouth of the Shannon called Fenit , when working an American rig 101 nautical miles due west in the Atlantic. One time and not a joke went there to buy a pair of shoes , found what I wanted and the male shopkeeper couldn’t find the partner to. He went round other shoe shops seeing if could find , without success and then with his droll Irish humour offered to sell me the solitary shoe for half price . Don’t think he was joking either . Cheers JS.

    Many many times John twixt 1965 and 1993, not been back since my Irish beauty passed away in '93 but back in the forty shades of green at least once a year in those years and more often if I wasn't sunning myself in Ethiopia, Sudan, Chad and all those other holiday places, or at least that is what my neighbours thought I was doing, always remarking, had a good holiday Ivan, I always recommended it to them, but they chose Cleethorpes instead!

    Ivan, yes mate Ireland is one of those countries you will always go back to, something about it that is hard to explain.

    Wife still has some extended family there se we go back about every second year now.

    Sorry to hear about the shoe, no doubt some one footed man had bought it, and yes their concept of sex is very odd to ay the least.
    But some got it right, my wife is one of 9 and her aunt had 13.
    Read of one lady who claimed she had 22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Bloody good Catholics is all I can say
    Happy daze John in Oz.
