10 Questions About…

Saturday in Blackrock by Ann Treacy

This weekend has been windy – very windy in Ireland. Rumor has it they took all of the boats out of the water on the West coast and they’d asked people to keep away from the coast. It’s not quite that bad in Dublin – but it is windy.

We had planned to go ice skating today but Kate decided that we shouldn’t because certainly we’d all break an arm. So we went to the Blackrock Market and to have lunch in Blackrock.

Blackrock isn’t very far from Cabinteely. We took a bus. The market wasn’t very busy – probably because of the wind and rain. The market has about 20 stalls and you can buy a wide range of items – from dream catchers, a red secondhand leather jacket that was only €15 (I add that in case Patrick is reading this and wondering what to get me for Christmas), books, records, candles and lot of other things.

Blackrock is on the bay so I took some pictures of Patrick and the kids – but as you’ll see the wind wasn’t too impressive here.

At night Patrick and I went to a pub called the Silver Tassie. Really we just went to any pub that was less than 3 bus stops away. It was pure luck that this pub has a singer with a drum machine and we could hear every female-sung song from 1982! Plus it was someone’s 60th birthday so there were tons of people dressed up.
