Katherine invites VT members around the world to join a meeting in her home town. So a good excuse to take a break and discover the Irish way of life. The meeting was during the Cork Film Festival... a real show time with some famous VT actors... so watch the VT last show on my dedicated travelogue...

On Friday night I join the VT team @ An Spailpin Fanac for a live Irish music session, as usual thousands of cameras were flashing late in the night. On Saturday I would make a remake of Jaws but no cruise was available around the Kinsale harbour... so the VT sailors were hanging around to find out the best kept secret of the day : the legendary Kinsale Brewery. At evening time all the happy VTer's meet at the Market Line for dinner then back to Opera and its red carpet for a last drink. On Sunday, I was hesitated to go to kiss the famous Blarney Stone but finally I prefered to stay @ Cork City trying to kiss the real Sharon Stone instead ;-) To be continued...

    Wish I could have joined you all for this meeting! Love the colourful houses in Kinsale, the tempting goodies at the market, and of course the Beamish ;-) And your graffiti "tip" is great LOL

    Seems you had lots of fun spent with the vter's in Ireland. So i guess, Beamish had no shortage of irish beer ;) Good tips here but Gaelic, oh help!

    I'm SO jealous of your Cork page - I've still got TONS to do from my Ireland trip, and Halifax AND my recent Stateside trip!!! Great photos and tips! Gillybob greetings

    It was worth waiting for those tips, Patrick! Love colourful Kinsale, the prison cook and kissing the right Stone :-)

    Patrick, fabulous updates here. I love you colourful Kinsale photos. Also your tip about the prison in Cork is more than useful. *winkygrin*
