Regrets. I have more than a few.

Postby BrendanNolan » Tue May 20, 2008 9:03 am

Hello all.

Sadly, I cannot be with you at Mullingar, this year, for I will be in Listowel on the same dates and while Aileen may be able to be in the kingdom and elsewhere at the same time, I cannot.
I made loads of friends in Westport last year with whom I am still in touch; so I would encourage as many members as have not been to conference before to attend.
It's more than a conference: it's a gathering and a happening and the beginning of something new, if you so choose.

Next year, for sure.
Brendan Nolan

i had just the best few days around the conference - anyone who had to listen to me whining the night before the conference over the love of my life leaving me for another woman will be glad to hear it.

i left the conference very happy and got lost between mulligar and athlone (those two towns do not have signs to point at each other at all) - but i got a laugh because i wandered through no less than three little towns in offaly each proclaiming to be the 'hometown of an taoiseach brian cowen'
but then i got to listowel and got to meet my cousins and another ibw online friend offline - brendan nolan - where we spent a happy evening following players around pubs of my teenhood listening to exceprts from john b keanes plays and drinking beer and finishing up in john b keanes pub.
brendan i am sorry for my impromptu departure but jumbos was closing and i feared for my snack box and curry sauce.

i look forward to next year!

There's a lot of that in neighbouring towns, I find... Ballina and Castlebar seem totally unaware of each other's existance... and we drove in circles around Tralee looking for the rest of Kerry once :D

Sounds like you had fun :)

Hi Cadetcola.
It appears a lunch box was an attraction as well.

pink elephants

Postby BrendanNolan » Thu Jun 05, 2008 7:00 am

A.
When you said, in between Berkeley performing her stunning a cappella solo in John B Keane’s open-air beer garden and Meg launching into a haunting Summertime, that you wanted to go to Jumbo's, I understood this to be an all-night circus, not a chipper.

The attraction of pink sauce is interesting and I wonder if you have considered becoming Jumbo's master franchiser?

With a little diligence, everybody, everywhere, could then see pink elephants all night long.

For my part, I’m still waiting for the clowns to show up.
I love clowns.
