Hello Wail Friends,
Welcome to summer 2015 – Wail world is crazy busy – I’ll get right to the news.
First off, here is the report on the October “us-on-the-bus”
brought to you by Inishfree Irish Tours.
We are at 11 folks signed up and deposits paid. Here’s the deal – we can take up to 21 peeps
– if we don’t get more than 15 Wail-fans/friends to sign on, the trip will not happen — yikes!
Sooooo ….. if you are on the fence, please come on down.
If you know someone who just might sign on, give them a nudge.
The really cool thing about this tour is that our man John Smith
has made arrangements at every stop along the way to be sure there is traditional Irish music
in each and every pub – each and every night.
It really is the tour for people who don’t like tours.
Besides you will get to hang with Jeffo and Maggie and me (Sims).
We’ll tell stories, sing a few tunes together, we might even write a tune or two together along the way.
We promise it will be a trip of a life time if not THE very best trip of your life.
