Because she wants to go to portlaoise and this train doesn't stop there though she says that it should. The checker told he she would have to pay for the portion up to Dublin and back down because she boarded the train and was told to change at Thurles.
She claims she shouldn't have to pay because its not her fault the train doesn't stop and she's doing her bit for the environment.
So there. She has decided to not pay and to argue her case in her cultured tones in Heuston.
The upside for üs is that she has shutup and we no longer have to listen to her work calls.

This Register of Electors seems to be a farce alright. My details have been incorrect for years and during the summer I filled in the form and returned it to the Corpo. Judge my surprise when I couldn't find myself on the register. I rang the Corpo who confirmed that I was still spelt incorrectly and they promised to chnage it. Still no change a few weeks later.
Interestingly my refuse charges bill has my name spelt ok.

Airport security is a strange beast.
My pants setoff the àlarm in Barcelona but not in Heathrow. My boots went through Cork, Heathrow and Barcelona but not Berlin. My GPS was scanned twice in London but not Barcelona.
Waiting for flight to Cork and its a dreary Heathrow !

In Gatwick North Terminal waiting for flight to Barcelona.
It is very quiet here much quieter than I've ever seen a London airport. Nice noodles upstairs with a view towards the runway.
Flight over was with Ryanair and we had a Jimi Hendrix look alike on board. Seats were cramped though. Jimi won the onboard raffle for a free flight (no tins of USA biscuits though)

Quick. Note for anyone thinking of visiting the dome - being a baby in their buggy with you. The queues weer massive so we decided not to join then but an employee noticed us and asked is did we want to visit as there was a fast track for families with small children.
So off we went and 5 minutes later we were up top. See Flickr for some pics. Its an excellent panoramic view.
Coming down we joined the queue for the lift and another employee came along and told üs to go to the top as we were a family with small kids.
All in all a nice change to get some priority !
