Northern Ireland

Wednesday 29th April 2009

An early start to the day see's us driving to Portstewart after a huge breakfast. The North Derry coastline looks incredibly wild against the backdrop of horizontal rain! Played at the Dominican College to most of year 8 who were an incredibly receptive audience and then drank several cups of tea accompanied by classic staff room banter. Lunch in the Portstewart Bakery followed by a drive to Limavady blew the cobwebs away and prepared us for an afternoon concert in Limavady High School. The highlight was at the end of the concert one of the students, Charmaine, sang a song accompanied by Mr Dunlop on the guitar.

The evening gig took place in the Letterkenny Regional Cultural Centre meaning a quick trip across the border and prices being cunningly rounded up from 1 pound to 2 Euros 50! The audience and venue were excellent and we had a great night. A huge thank you to Guy and Harriet for looking after us so well.
