    Hi Everyone! Make your way over to the Rougey Lodge. Davey is having car trouble and will be a little late, but on the way there.

  • Davey

    Hi Folks,
    Due to the extreme weather we are having at the moment we've put in place a Plan B , this is ONLY if the Surfing is called off ,so take it that we ARE Surfing :) Mulled wine reception on Friday ,
    Saturday surfing or surf fitness class in the water
    Pizza and Party at the Surf lodge Saturday night
    And a Fitness class on the beach / water on Sunday
    all for a discounted price (basically minus the surf lessons) Mullaghmore looks to be the place for tomorrow but we will keep an eye on the off-shore winds and see what is best in the morning. See you around 8pm in Rougey Lodge for a Wine reception :-) Davey

  • Joe K.

    Hey, I'm interested in going on this trip, just wondering if there's any chance of getting a lift from Dublin late in the evening? I have to drive from Dundalk to Dun Laoighre next Friday then back to Dundalk after 2 pm and get the bus back to Dublin, so if anyone is leaving Dublin later in the evening that would be cool...

    Can I pay the €10 deposit by debit card or how is this organised?

    March 15, 2013

    • Davey

      Hi Joe , if you have PayPal you can pay the deposit that way. Else you can pay when you are there . Some people drive up Saturday morning also so check back here to get a lift. Also post up what time you expect to be in Dublin for , might make it easier to arrange . Anything else just ask , see you soon , Davey

      March 15, 2013

    • Joe K.

      Cheers Davey. I'd expect to be in Dublin around 5. Alternatively I could drive up myself on saturday morning if anyone from louth needs a lift.

      March 15, 2013
