Ye shower of negative nannies..
We'll have a Craic come Hell or High water..

pointed at some of the clearest skies that year..
So the best weather forecast is a window and look out.

Cheers Roy

If last night was anything to go by, I'll be bringing thermal long johns, ski pants, parka, winter hat, snow boots and thick gloves, flipping heck it was cold. :pinch: I had to check the calendar that it was still August, I thought it was November.

It depends on where you are coming from Kevin. I'm travelling from Dublin (via Limerick / Adare / NewCastleWest / Abbeyfeale / CastleIsland) to Killorgan and then counter clockwise around the ring. If you were coming from the Cork direction, then definitely Kenmare - Waterville - Ballinskelligs. But if your coming from North Kerry / Limerick / ...
