Mr. BTH, We might just miss each other. Depends. I hope not. I'll be coming in around the 1st or 2nd of Oct. I've got a Radiohead concert in a great big bloody tent to see Then I'm going to be in Dublin still when the new album from U2 goes on sale. I'm actually going to buy my copy in Dublin. EEEEEEEEKKK!!!!


Sorry that fact just hit me full strength

Miners eh? Maybe me doing a geology degree wasn't a random act of fate after all... minin's in me blood, by crikey! I fully intend to visit Cornwall, zoomerang... one day... Heck, I might have already been there for all I know, but I don't remember... my parents took me to England when I was three... good in some way, but in others their timing SUCKED... Oh well.
That is so cool whiteflag...

Ali,

please DO NOT tell me that you are doing a geology degree in melbourne - that's what I did!!!!!

Are you at melbourne, monash or latrobe? I was at melbourne (actually I should say I was predominantly at the Clyde Hotel), but if you are there doing paleontology, you would know Malcolm?

I swear this post just keeps getting stranger for me....

Sorry ZoomerangII, but I AM doing a geology degree in Melbourne!! I'm at Monash actually, but I've heard of Malcom... rings a bell anyway. I probably saw his name around at the Melb. uni open day some years ago... The palaeo person at Monash is Pat Vickers-Rich.
I've finished all the geology subjects now, I'm just doing a 3rd year biol subject to fill up on points so I can graduate. (yay!)
What sort of geol. were you doing?
*points at the 'Melbourne calling' topic* Wanna get together to talk U2 AND rocks?

No no! I want to hear about U2 AND rocks right here!!!

This has been a bizarre topic with loads of wierd coincidences happening. I just found out that Mazz is from Perth which is about 20 miles from where I live in Dundee...!!

In Dundee I have one of those unmetered connections to the 'net. It cost 50 for the year's access and it's working pretty good. Here at home though I'm just on the usual phone bill connection which my parents won't be too pleased about!

BTW, Aine, saw those sites you were talking about! Pretty amazing... I didn't even know that kind of thing existed! But still, you must be heavily into Ireland to have absorbed any of it!! How did the interest start? Do you like Irish music... Planxty, Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Deanta, The Bothy Band, Iarla O'Liannaird, etc etc! I could reccomend a few if you like!

And Whiteflag, we will miss each other. i start back in college on Oct 7th, but I have to be back from Dublin before the 28th of Sept because, guess what, I'm going to see radiohead in their bloody great tent in Glasgow!! Twice!! How keen is that??? But I must say I would soo much rather be seeing them in Dublin... Irish crowds are so much better!! (oh, controversy!!)

And I must say. I really am starting to like Dundee! I have been in the city for three years and I honestly hated every minute of it!! I couldn't wait to get home, no matter how good a time I'd be having with my mates. But now, having worked with some "real" people in Dundee ie, not just students, Im starting to feel a sense of belonging. And I have a new flatmate, an old friend who I hadn't really known too well. And we get along so well, it's unbelievable! So for the first time I'm actually dying to get back to Dundee!! Quite a nice feeling since the next time I'll be home is at Christmas...

And poor Prince Willie! I really pity him having to go to St. Andrews!! Pretty little town and all, and plenty of nice people there... But such a lot of rich, spoilt, idiotic brats go there. And it is unbelievably dull. Dundee is bad for nights out etc, but multiply that x10 for St. Andrews!!!

Haven't been to Falkirk though... Maybe I'm due a visit!!??

Well, thats enough for now. I really should do some e-mailing but I'm so tired!

Bye!
BRIAN

hey mazz! You must admit that it isn't the most exciting of places! And it does seem to attract a disproportionate ammount of toffee-nosed high society brats in expensive cars. It's a fairly recent phenomenon too.

However, as I live in Dundee I dont really have room to talk about places being dull! Do I??!! What's Perth like for a night out. I hear it has some good clubs, but I have never actually set foot in it, just passed through on the bus! Have you ever been to the new Arts Centre in Dundee? I work there so if you have I've probably seen you before. As a U2 fan you should have come to see Million Dollar Hotel!

Sorry Mr Blyth dont drink in Perth that much but do a lot in Edinburgh, Grass market is ok there a few clubs open from 5 til 5 if you can last the pace. Dublin has a load of good places just love it when the bar is supposed to close and they just pull the shutters down and you just go on drinking Ah to be in Dublin again I love the place that much I think i should just move out there.(if only maybe someday)

Sorry to hear you were ill,Michael.Hope you
are better now.

How nice,Mazz!I have two little faires in a
honey-jar and I'll be pleased if you make them talk!Can you?

Whiteflag,I forgot to tell you one very important thingo you know that you are a bit Irish because you live in Greater Ireland ?

And Brian! Yes,I will be VERY grateful if you
tell me some more about Irish Traditional music,especially about that which you like yourself.And it's so nice you began your list
with Planxty and Christy Moore,because it was the first Irish music I ever heard :
actually it was "Follow Me Up to Carlow".I also listened to Silly Wizard - I heard they are from Scotland? And Steeleye Span,and Clannad,and the Dubliners,and Chieftains,and the Blarney Lads,and Waxies Dargle,and Ewan and Kirsty MacColl,and Shane MacGowan,and...
And I'm afraid you're going to say I mixed everything up!!But that's how it is.
By the way, what is your grandfather's name?Do you think I might have heard it?and how is your progress with his CD?
And you are so mysterious!I see that everybody's trying to catch you either in
Scotland or in Ireland and they seem to miss
you!
Ah,I still have not answered your question about how it all started...But it is already
a long post and the story is even a little
longer.Well,I can send you an e-mail - will
you wait a little bit?

LOL,
Aine

Hello everyone,

I'm still hanging around and still waiting for some people to email me. Ahem! You know who you are. I will understand if youre busy, hey I get that way too, but I don't have to be happy about it do I? ..
Hey Brian, any chance you might be back around Halloween? Maybe the holidays? If things go right I should be still in Dublin up until Christmas time. There just that pesky matter of the work permit/visa. But I'm diligently working on it, exploring all the angles. Maybe I should just apply for EU citizenship...hmmmmmmm
Does anyone here from Ireland know of anyone from America that has sucessfully aquired a work permit? How is it done generally. Is it possible to get one even if you don't have a skill?
Aine, if you're reading this, an email is on the way. Slowly but surely...You too, Alisaura. I've had a heck of a week.
Oh, Aine. What does that mean? Greater Ireland?
And to all you U2 Irish folks, do you know if U2 are more visible in Dublin around the time of an album release or less so? I'd love think I might have a greater chance of some U2 spotting when I go

Whiteflag,

if you want to go to Ireland and work, there are a huge number of jobs available, especially in IT around dublin.

To get a work permit, check out the "Work" section in Lonely Planet - get the book on Ireland, its really good, otherwise check out www.lonely-planet.com.

If you have a grandparent born in Ireland (like me), you are actually most likely eligible for Irish citizenship. And if you are under 28 (i think) non eu commonwealth countries and the usa i think can get a one year working holiday type of visa.

Whiteflag,

"We have our Greater Ireland beyond the sea",
it is America.It was often called so at least
in the 19th century because the Irish community there was (and is) so big.

Now that you have so much information have you made up your mind yet ?
