I was on the road and stopped at the old cit of Armagh and managed a walk in between the showers
After the library I went to a Mall where I needed to get some help on my phone.....it was great in England but now I have used it a few times and the money ran out and I could not top it up....I went to the offices of EE the company I have as my server(does it sound like I know what I am talking about because I have no idea!!!) and they told me that yes the roaming charges are huge and he advised me to go to another mall a few minutes walk away and go to a company called 3 and get one of their SIM cards..so I walked and found the shop and they told me that their SIM would not fit my phone and as I was going to Ireland on Saturday to wait till I cross the border and get a card there....I am not sure that I fully understand all of this but I will try again in Dublin on Saturday.
Around 6.00 pm I pulled into the small village of
and went to the local Pub for dinner..it was very tasty home made vegetable soup and a chicken dish with CHAMP!!!!!
What is that you ask???
Champ (brúitín in Irish) is an Irish dish, made by combining mashed potatoes and chopped scallions with butter and milk, and optionally, salt and pepper. It is simple and inexpensive to produce. In some areas the dish is also called "poundies".
Champ is similar to another Irish dish, colcannon, which uses kale or cabbage in place of scallions.
The word champ has also been adopted into the popular Hiberno-English phrases, to be "as thick as champ", meaning to be stupid, and to be "as ignorant as champ at a wedding", meaning to be uncultured or boorish (champ being a common everyday dish, not one befitting a banquet celebration)
Now you know...it was a great meal!!
then went to my airbnb stay which is a large farm house in the country with a family with two young kids!!!
My room is fabulous
So I am hoping for clear skies tomorrow as I have a full agenda planned!!!!
