Pictures will be taken from the beach and make great Facebook profile pics

After surfing, we will return to the surf lodge for hot chocolate.

    • Katrin

      Hey Jess, not totally sure where and when we meet tomorrow. Sent you a mail with my number. Just let me know whats best for you and I'll make sure that I'll be there.

      October 17, 2013

    • Jess M.

      Hellooooo car buddies... JB and Dec, meeting you at Rathfarnham petrol station next to spar around 5:30... We are meeting Katrin and Sara at Dundrum Town centre Luas at 6:30 because that's when Sara can get there after she finishes work etc. So we can probably just go for a coffee or whatever between 5:30 and 6:30 depending on what time we get to Dundrum :) everyone ok with that plan? I've got your text Katrin so I know you're ok with that :) see you all tonight!

    It seems that there are not enough drivers to offer carpooling for everyone.

    Those who are stuck for lifts get yourself to Busaras and take the bus to Sligo. The bus will cost you 26.60 for a standard return if you buy your ticket online http://www.buseireann.ie/ From Sligo station we will arrange for someone to pick you up.

    Probably the most ideal bus to take will be Bus 23 departing 5:30pm. It has no changes and will get you to Sligo shortly after 9pm. Perfect timing! This will give you enough time to freshen up from you journey and join the gang in the pub for a little dwink... or two... up to you :P

    It is very important that you let me know before hand if you are taking this option, so that I can make the proper arrangements in good time. Thanks!

    So excited for this weekend!!!! Looking forward to seeing all of you! :)

    Cheers!

    Hey, anyone having trouble getting lifts, if nothing materialises for you but you can make it as far as Sligo, I'll come from Strandhill and pick you up. I'll be there around 830pm dropping off passengers and boards, so am available after that. If this would help, pm me before lunchtime tomorrow (Friday) otherwise it'll fall on deaf ears. :D
