Day 187: (Dublin Port to outside Naas (Co Kildare) – Approx 65km – Distance travelled so far 11,200km “Pauls very slip in Ireland and good ould Irish weather”

First leg on the ferry platform in Dublin and Paul slips and lands right back on his elbow…Ouch!!! “I thought that was it for me” and “well thats just perfect!!” were quotes that quickly followed. We finally land ourselves on terra ferma was the first time in 6 months. The weather is so bad.

The Irish Independent call over to take some pictures and interview us. We will also got on The Ray Darcy and George Hook’s “The right hook” at some later stage too. Its great to be in Ireland again and with the weather improving, we will attempt to get on the bikes again and head down to Naas, raising awareness all the way for our charity; the Share a Dream Foundation. But first we have to hit the pub for the first Irish Pint on G!. We meet Brian’s college mate Frank and his girlfriend Mia.

On our way down, lots of people wave at us, sound their car horns…Its going to be an enjoyable couple of days!!!….Brian has to stop off in a pub in Naas to take a call from George Hook on his show….Its all a bit too surreal!!! – We meet up at a couple of locations on the way down with Tina from Share and Dream (accompanied by all her devoted fundraisers)….We will try to collect as much as possible with Tina in the coming days in the larger towns on the way….We will camp tonight outside Naas village. We aim to camp the last couple of nights before the coming….Beds would also be so so welcome!!!!
