I arrived in Ireland by boat, on the 6th of May 1992, down in Dun Laoghaire (that’s the light house on the port side as you come into the harbour). I got off the boat and hitched into the city centre at 7 am in the morning. I was backpacking, you see. I had spent 3 weeks in Scotland and the Orkney islands… I was going to travel the world for 6 months taking a break from university – i didn’t get very far- instead I got stuck here, in a happy way.
Happy anniversary to me!
