There's some question at this point about the Moneygall trip, because the president has been scheduled to fly by helicopter to the town of his ancestors, but high winds may call for a motorcade. So we shall see. It would greatly disappoint the locals, and many others, if the trip didn't come off...

2. No train? MUCH more fun than motorcade, imo!

3. Hm. I've been on an Irish train...

Getting back to the president, word is that he had to leave Ireland early due to that durn volcanic ash. :grr:
