I went to the Tullamore Dew Distillery also the Kilbeggan Distillery
which is Irelands oldest both are within 10 km of each other. It's a
beautiful country with friendly people. I could live there if it
wasn't for the euro which has caused rampant inflation. Ireland along
with England & Scotland have 15% unemployment nearly twice as much as
America. The one thing I noticed they don't dwell on the negative the
glass is always half full instead of half empty. Due to rain they lost
30% of the crops but the news reported on a positive note we saved 70%.
I hope I brought back some of that positive energy in me. Dublin,
Cashel, Cork, Galway ect....all were great to visit. First night we
went to Irelands oldest pub which is in Dublin the Brazen Head which
dates back to 1198. We always asked the locals where they went to avoid
the tourist places. Everyone we talked to went out of there way to help.
It didn't take long back in Atlanta airport to know I was back here
with everyones schitty attitudes.
