Saturday Night up North

Saturday we had an invite to be on The Saturday Connection radio show with Charlie McGettigan from 10-12.  Due to unfortunate circumstances with us, got a little lost and missed most of the show.  We finally found the radio station.  Made it for the last 15 minutes of the show.  Thankful to Charlie for being so gracious with the Americans!  WE LOVED this show, loved hanging with Charlie.  He really loved our music!  That makes my heart smile!!  We were on the radio show with a lovely poet, Bernadette McCarrick. 'A Swan in Flight'.  It was extraordinary to listen to her poems and then we would explain one of our songs and perform it.  The short time FLEW!  We loved every second.  Can't wait for a 2nd chance to go back and know where the heck we are going, since we will be experienced Ireland travelers and make the entire hour show with Charlie!  
Once our time was us, we chatted with Charlie and Berandette for a few minutes.  Taylor did not join us on this outing, instead he went to the flea market happening right across the street!  So we joined him when we were finished.  We did manage to pick up a Cookie Jar, out of all things for ME!  I collect them.  I can say it made the trip back to the United States and is beautifully displayed in our kitchen!  We paid 2 Euro for it, but it is priceless to me.
Headed up north after to do a gig in Castleblaney.  We made our long drive to Caslteblaney.  On the way up, our good friend and amazing photographer, Bret Pemelton had texted me.  A Instagram friend of his, actually lives outside of Caslteblaney and she wanted to come to our show.  So we were able to meet her and hang with her during our show.  This one was interesting.  It was a Saturday night show with Matt Leavy.  The crowd was ready for Saturday night dancing!  We are NOT that kind of music.  We still had a good time.  After we finished we went back to our rooms.  About 3:00 am we were awakened with 2 very drunk people trying for a 1/2 hour to get in our room.  They were determined that it was their room.  Their key did not work, but they didn't care...Ahhh the fun.
