We went to Inishmor the other week for the day. This was an early start because the ferry leaves for the Aran Isles at ten sharp. We paid our thirty Euros (each!) for the hour and a quarter sail to the largest island in the Aran Isles. Also the wife wanted to know what the Aran knitting patterns mean. Like you do!
The sail was a bit choppy in places and we were freezing when we arrived at the pier. After being asked by countless mini cab drivers if we wanted to pay fifteen Euros to go on the tour of the island. We found a Spar and queued up for coffee and breakfast rolls.
My wife being like most women. Soon found herself engaged in a conversation with an American lady. It went something like the following:
What's that you are ordering?
A breakfast roll.
Whats in a breakfast roll?
The wife then explained the contents of the breakfast roll..
A fed up donkey who didn't want to talk to me. Perhaps he only spoke donkey Gaelic?
Some very brave tourists peering over the edge of the 300 foot cliffs. I didn't look down!
I did have a conversation with one of people who supervised the visitors. I said there should be a fence put up. He said:
"A few people have said the same".
There is no health and safety in Ireland. Or very little. It is a beautiful place to visit though.
