In true fashion Raye and I did our trip to Dublin totally wrong. For starters we showed up hungover as all hell. We went on Easter weekend so once our really bad hangover was over it was Good Friday and it was illegal to sell any alcohol. We chose the one day the Irish DON"T drink. WTF? So had another night in. Though the religious element of the weekend was all there was about the weekend. It was also the anniversary of the Easter Rebellion that eventually lead to independence.  We did do loads of sight seeing. I took a crap ton of pictures.

Mumified cat chasing a mouse that was found in the organ. The two were killed instantly in mid chase and found years later. Aparently it's featured in Joyce's Finnagins Wake. COOL!

I like when the picture does the caption for me.
