A real treat today for us…especially for Arthur…in that the libraries arranged taxi service for us so that we wouldn’t have to navigate the VERY challenging roads and traffic of the city.
At our morning show at Mayfield Library in the north end of Cork, we had a wonderful group of special needs very attentive teenagers. Tea of course was offered and since once again it was a day of no rain (knock on wood!), we lingered outside visiting with Mary, the chief librarian as we waited for our taxi to arrived to take us to our next venue.
We were then ferried back into the heart of Cork City for our afternoon show at Grand Parade Library. A packed room of ninety 9 and 10 year olds who seemed quite delighted by our Canadian accents.
We navigated our way out of Cork City with not too much trouble and had a stop in the town of Mallow for a late pub lunch en route to the Limerick area.
The Honey Fritz Theatre, where we perform tomorrow night, is on the outskirts of Limerick. We stopped in there to meet our host, Roseanne Dunne, who was also putting us up for 2 nights. After giving us specific directions to her house, we were greeted by her husband Pat and two children and served a wonderful dinner.
The day and busy week of performances must have caught up with me since I had a 13 hour sleep. A personal record!
