Okay, what do we need to bring?

- Air Mat (check)
- Toilet Paper
- Booze
- Bottle of Single Malt (check)
- Noise Maker (check)
- Food
- More Drink
- Heavy Stick (as a protection from dogs)
- Rifle (as a protection from any pitchfork wielding mucksavage)

Anything else?

Okay, now you're gonna need to change that attitude if you're coming down to Clare. They dont like to think of themselves as mucksavages. They're just culturally challenged.

And they say "Yaaahoooooo" a lot - it doubles as a sort of mating call and a battle cry. It can come in handy after the pub in lots of different situations.

Okay, I will be careful (I just like that word, hehehehe... Would Bog Warrior be more accurate?)

Mating call and battle cry? It probably leads up the same end result, doesn't it? Don't they have a marriage ritual where they club the bride over the head and then drag her into the cave?

But I have to say, I really like Clare and I met some really nice people there...

I heard an unconfirmed rumour that this year they have a guy who puts a weasel down his trousers for entertainment.

And do I have to be worried if anybody asks me if I'd like to go clubbing?

And is this festival actually a disguise for the yearly blood refreshment initiative?

Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!!! (jumping up and down, waving his hands uncontrolably)

Lol! Wait til you see where its on Phil. Not a club for 50 miles!!

It's a great spot, just pubs and live music and lots of craic. No need to even bring "going out clothes". ;)

Warpaint might be a good idea if you're going for an evening look.

So I have to be worried about the clubbing, then....

Warpaint sounds good... What colour? And I try to get the old furs out (you will see me following busy roads with a shovel and a bucket - I don't support the Fur industry)
