Lads I have no idea if I'm even going to make it this year, never mind when I'm going to go! Don't even have any running cars either!
Were the ferries that expensive last year?
Not even close me lad.
Well, Joey's new price is around the same I think. That Dublin-Holyhead one is making my booking finger tingle. Bound to save more than 30euro in petrol between Dublin and Rosslare too, so it makes sense...
They're much better looking prices lads, i'm hoping to book very soon. Bruce, I'll be there - had hoped for the Magnum but having no wages has hindered the progress there so the GT will go again I reckon
1. JoeySully + whoever I can convince to go shotgun 2. Leigh 3. .....
And what the plan???
I'm think of taking the Dublin - Holyhead this year instead of Rosslare. Its a bit of a longer distance but the new motorway from Cork-Dublin should be quicker.
So I'm thinking
Dublin - Holyhead Thursday, 05 August 21:15 Holyhead - Dublin Monday, 09 August 13:50 Whats the plan when we get there? Drive on or stop in Holyhead overnight and head off Friday morning. I slept in the car last year in Fishguard which I don't really fancy doing again. I don't really fancy putting up a tent at 1 in the morning either. So maybe book a hostel or something?

I think we could do either ferry or combine, perhaps meeting up in wales. The Dublin to Rosslare run wasn't fun last year.
I think, unless someone volunteers, I'll put together some options and see what and when we can do. Some people will want to be booking soon and at least from the north we hope to have a couple of people that haven't made the run before so could do with settling their minds!
Thats a very generous offer from MM as well that we would be foolish not to accept! I had actually thought of asking something along the same lines, but during the return trip instead.
Pauric, it's quite likely you're going to have your X fixed for you, so your only excuse will be the cost
