    I have received the competition prizes in the post today and (at the risk of sounding a bit salesy) it’s an excellent book – a nice size with an easy layout full of interesting and useful information. This is not just a book for tourists – I think the locals will gain a lot from it too.

    I guess we’ll let the competition run another couple of days before picking our winners.

  13. Gary says:

    Free newspapers are available in most hotel lobbies.

    😉

    There are a family of seals by Bullock Harbour near Dalkey who swim right up to the rocks. We were there last Saturday afternoon and they were being fed fish and shrimp. Excellent free entertainment!

    K – competition is now closed and we will be selecting the winner shortly. Thank you to everyone who took part.
