Anyone want to join me in Ireland?

Hi all,
I wanted to wait until everything was official to post anything, but after two months of planning, everything is finalized and I'm heading to Ireland July 10th for six months to work!
(disclaimer: for what it's worth, I started planning this BEFORE the studio encounters; I'm not going to Ireland to stalk U2!) In any case, I know there are quite a few other Interferencers who are living there now, others who are thinking of moving there, and quite a few more who plan to visit in the next few months. So.. first let me say, wherever I end up, everyone (but not at the same time, hehe) is invited to stay with me and visit, although I make no guarantees I'll end up in Dublin (though I'm about 95% sure-- there are lots of details that need to be settled). Anyway, the other part of this post is for people who are planning to move to Ireland sometime in the next little while (or are there now).... First of all, I would love to meet you guys! Second, is there anyone who would like to share a flat ? Personally, I can't pay a lot for rent, I'm hoping to get a decent job but as places are expensive I will most likely not have a lot of extra money so I'll probably be living with a few other people-- whatever is cheap, but also comfortable. Anyway, right now I'm pretty flexible, I just wanted to wait for my Irish visa to be finalized before I started planning things too early. Now it's final so... Time to start planning!
So... If anyone is interested in meeting up, sharing a flat, whatever, drop me a line at h_coristine@sympatico.ca. :-)

Hello zoogrl!

I believe I met you in Oakland on the 15th. You were responsible for setting up the line for the heart, as well as staying overnight in the line for the 16th. Some friends and I talked with you that night after the show, and you talked about where you had come from and travelled to see U2. It was great getting a chance to meet you.

By the way, I hope you have a wonderful time in Ireland. It is a wonderful thing when you can take advantage of an opportunity like this. I do hope you get to meet the band as well, because I remember when talking with you, and thinking what an awesome and devoted fan you were, and I just know all your dreams and aspirations will come true in Ireland. If you ever have a chance to email U2 friends will updates of your trip to Ireland, I'd love to hear how things are going for you. I can be reached at u2iwillfollow1980@yahoo.com

Again, take care and have a wonderful trip, and maybe we will see you in California again!

Chris

Not going to stalk U2?? Suuuuurrreee!)

Ah you'll love it here, and by the way, a BIG TIP, if you're into decent music, one of the best line-ups for a festivel EVER in this country, Witnness, is on at the Fairyhouse racecourse just outside Dublin on July 13/14, so that would be a nice way to start your time here If you're interested check it out online at www.witnness.com , I can't bloody wait for it!!!

And good luck with your move!

ahh, wow, I didn't expect so many replies so quickly.... thank you :-)

spanisheyes, how have you been? good to hear from you!! It's funny, ever since I left California I've been itching to go back-- do a road trip, or something, it was so beautiful to drive through. No more sleeping outside arenas, though, wow, it was COLD that night-- I thought California was supposed to be warm? :-) Thanks for the nice wishes about Ireland, and I will definitely email you my updated plans.

Ally, when will you be there? We definitely have to meet up....

Lazyboy, it's funny that you mention the Witnness festival-- I was actually just looking at the pollstar.com website last night looking for concerts and I pulled it up, it looks fantastic! The only problem is that it's over 100 pounds which, when I translate it into Canadian dollars, SOOOOO expensive! Is it really worth going to? Is it possible to get tickets a little closer to the date of the show or do they sell out really quickly? Maybe I should start thinking about this....

Thanks again everyone for replying... email anytime.... :-)

I've been considering it...I studied in Scotland last year and spent that summer in Ireland...and I miss it dearly. I've thought about moving back to where I worked last year, Kilkenny..but I'm not sure I'll be able to find a place to live...I got back more in financial aid than I expected and I'm considering using part of it to go back this summer...but I don't know where I would work...I don't think I have enough time to apply for a student work visa anymore...

Hey again Well, this is the 3rd Witnness festivel, I went to the first one and got a day ticket about 4 days before the gig, the 2nd 1 was a bit crap and everyone was going to Slane so that didn't sell out at all I don't think. But this one, it's amazing!! Definitely the best by far, so I dunno, could be risky waiting til the last minute. I haven't got my ticket yet but we are getting them soon. And the price ain't that bad when ya think about it, everyone is put off by it cos it looks so expensive, but it's Euros! You can get a day ticket for e60 which is about $50. You can see the bands involoved yourself on the website, and you can buy the tickets there too, they're cheaper the earlier you buy them. I'd definitely recommend it anyway!

I'm definatly in for a gathering!! I will probably arrive late june early july, there are so many dates to choose from, I can't make up my mind. LOL

Whatever date you decide I'll be there. But it has to be the 11th, 12th, 15th or 16th, right? ZooGrl arrives on the 11th and *Ally* is leaving the 17th and the 13th and 14th are booked for the festival.
What about the 12th, it's a friday so anyone with a job should be able to join.

oh, this will be fun! any other interferencers interested? and maddie, do try to make it down to dublin at some point!

btw, i think i'm going to witness on the 14th only- i really want to see oasis, plus starsailor will be playing...

Oh boy have I heard anyone saying WITNESS?
I'm soooo up for it.
Haven't bought my tickets yet (yes they're bloody expensive but hey, it's a whole lot of good bands playing, think of it as paying 5, 10 euro per band or something) but I'm game!

Zoo Grl: I'd love to meet you whenever you're around. drop me a line at desert_rose@hotpress.com if you feel like. I've been living in Dublin for quite a while now and I have no idea what I'll be doing in the next couple of months, but I'm always free for a pint!!!!

And Lazy lazy lazyboy... when you coming dear?
