I've a photo taken from the passenger lounge at Liverpool of my little
Cessna 152 parked on the main apron next to a Bae 146. 1995 - not that
long ago.

Oh I'm hooked.  I have always loved Ireland - been there many times when
I was younger as I used to play Irish music on the penny whistle and
mandolin. Had a few long sessions in the pubs in Doolin - the Mecca for
Irish folkies, with fellow musicians from literally all over the world.

I can see me going there regularly now I've been shown the ropes by a
more experienced pilot.
