  3. Guy looks very modern. Always amazed about the sewer pipes on the outside. Strictly forbidden by regulations here in the Netherlands.

  5. How cool. We have just finished watching Michael Portillo's Train Journey to Sligo (BBC2, last Thursday). Plenty of mention of Yeats.

  6. I learned "An Irish Airman Forsees his Death" when I was at school. I can still quote most of it.

  10. So glad your surgery was successful, Bill!
    That's a great poster of Yeats - love his poem 'The Isle of Innisfree'.

  15. "Great Southern" rings a bell. I think there are are a few of them in Ireland? Nice portrait of Yeats.

  16. Good ol' Yeats: "There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met."

  17. Nice. And I note that the hotel is a Great Southern. In the 1970s we went to Ireland three times, and stayed in some Great Southern hotels then. (Most of the time we stayed in B&Bs.) The Great Southern hotels were pretty fancy and were our splurges.

  18. ...it's interesting that some of the plumbing appears to be on the outside of the build.

  19. I read Yates in high school and was spellbound. His house is near Balls Bridge Road in Dublin, not far from Crowe's Pub.
