Barry & Seonaid, I've just read your last blog and as usual it was excellent. You have described the sights, sounds, smells and atmosphere of all the places you have been so well that it really brought them to life. It has brightened my day on many occasions. Look forward to seeing you soon. Safe home. Love Noreen
Hi Barry & Seonaid, heard that you'll be home soon, the time has gone by so quickly. I look forward to seeing you but I'll miss the blog too. Hope Dermot has a big roast dinner ready for you on Sunday and some easter eggs!! See you soon, Noreen.
Hi Barry & Seonaid, Belated happy St. Patrick's Day. Sorry I missed your call as I was away celebrating in the Free State, in Bundoran to be exact. Miss you and don't worry too much about attitute there which is essentially a throw back from the Vietnam war I suppose all westerners are mistakenly blamed for America's faults as usual. Enjoy the view and come home safe in the knowledge we live in the best country in the world. Happy Days.
HAPPY ST. PADDYS DAY BARRY AND SEONAID!! I,ve just read noreens message and i'll not be at the family party today unfortunatly, not because i'm ante irish, like her, but quite the opposite! Because of her boycotting st. pats day these past few years i had made alternate arrangements and will be spending it in my adopted holywood supper at a friends and fiddley dee at dirty duck! Looking forward to it but will miss the family craic! I've always wanted to go to vietnam but i hear your not totally impressed? Look forward to hearing all in april. Find somewhere to drown your shamrock cause i bet if you look hard enough you'll find some (just grab a peice of grass or any greenary and wrap it in a little peice of tinfoil sure the nams will never know)! love maggie xx
Hi Barry & Seonaid
Enjoyed the last blog, Mal said he'll give you a few lessons in blagging your way into concerts when you get home. Happy St Patricks day for tomorrow. I have decided to celebrate it this year, as the last few years I sort of boycotted it due to not feeing very "irish" anymore but I decided to host a small party at my house this year, maybe not as mad as the ones we used to have but you never know!! I still dont feel very Irish but I will drink Bailey's and Irish whiskey to see if it will help. So we will all be thinking about you both and hope that you will be able to drown your shamrock wherever you are! love Noreen.
hi folks, finally got my computer up and running again! I sent you a mobile text on your birthday Barry on the off chance you might receive it cause i had no internet access. Cant wait to taste your thai cooking!! Joe does a great thai chicken curry. I think you were wise not to enter the murky world of Mal espiecally in Thailand!!! Miss ya loads cant wait till april. maggie xx
A belated happy birthday Barry from all of us. Hope you had a good one, I had a wee toast to you on Tuesday (any excuse!) Hope you're enjoying Thailand its still freezing here.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! I'm sure you are having a lovely time in Indonesia. Looking forward to seeing you both in April. Have fun.

Happy Birthday Barry hope you celebrated in style.
Well Barry just thought I'd drop you a line to wish you Happy Birthday..... Catching up with me! Delighted to talk to you on the web cam pity you couldnt get back on when the party was in full swing. At least you'll be here for my 40th in June Im sure my mother, brother and sisters have a massive surprise planned for me since I am the YOUNGEST can't wait! You probably know all about it. Anyway enjoy the rest of your travels take care and lots of love.

barry just finished the treasure hunt with the kids they really enjoyed it one hiding place [ which i came up with the clue for ] in the place where food is prepared and another word for knickers the answer was the drawer in the kitchen! eoin has just arrived he is hungover as usual the sisters are quiet at the moment but about to explode! dermot has stuffed his face and has hidden margarets carmel squares and the free state chocolate. wehave threatened him with drinking his belvedere vodka great to see you on webcam you looked wreaked. Hope to hear from you soon. You and Seonaid enjoy your last few months of touring and I look forward to seeing you home again.
