|Well today certainly began with problems. Ed wasn't feeling very well by the time we returned to Killarney last night, so he and Waynette didn't go with us to the Failte Pub for pub grub and music. By the time we walked back to the hotel, Dianne and Lori, and several of the others from Iowa and Alabama were feeling sick. I got a call at 6:30 a.m. this morning from Waynette saying that they needed a doctor for Ed. I called Tom who immediately called the front desk and got in touch with a doctor who came right on over to the hotel. He gave Ed a shot and a prescription. Then Diane wanted to see him too. Jimmy took Lori to a clinic. I'm not sure if the others saw a doctor or not, but all together we had 8 sick. There's been another tour group with Collette tours that has been staying at the same hotels as us and they had 9 sick. Apparently there is a "bug" that is going through the groups. Those that weren't sick went on what they call a "Jaunting Car Ride" which is the same as a horse and wagon ride! It was brisk, but the sun was out and when we got to Ross Castle, we knew it was worth it. What a view! After we returned, we loaded up and headed to a local B&B where we were served tea and scones. Then it was on to Adare for a lunch stop, then on through Limerick and out to Bunratty where we are staying for the night. Tonight, we were treated to a wonderful dinner of Irish Bacon and Cabbage with a 5-member authentic Irish band. They played a wonderful selection of tunes, danced to a couple of Irish reels, and even showed several who were game how to do a few Irish dance steps. By the end of the evening, all of our "sickies" were on the mend, no one else was complaining of feeling bad, so we're hoping the worst is behind us. The Irish air authority is planning on resuming a few flights our of Dublin tomorrow, so we're hoping that our flight out on Thursday will leave as usual, but right now, we're not sure.
