-Georgi recently resent the seisiun list, perhaps folks should save or
print the list..
the Ferryman , An Beal Bocht , o'Donoghue's , Slattery's ,
the Brazen Head (and across the street) more I'm sure..
Gael-Linn on Merrion Square, HMV and others on Grafton Street
Walton's at top of o'Connell Street just past Parnell Sqaure
Blaskets: check with Bord Failte in Killarney or Tralee, there may
be fishing boats that go from near Slea Head to the Blaskets,
the people of the islands left for the Dingle Peninsula
perhaps during the 50's.. former Taoiseach Charlie Haughey
has a residence there.
Good luck, have fun,
