Souvenir Hunting

Sweeney's at nearby Achill Sound has a wide range
of presents for the folks back home. There are
plenty of books on sale including the mummy porn
best-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey", which is
extremely popular in Ireland right now. For those
of a more sombre nature, there are also graveside
memorials such as this colourful tableau with
stigmata saint Padre Pio. Even the animals have
their own tributes including "Beloved Cat. You've
made our home special".

OWLs Meet Irish President!

Last week we mentioned that the Polranny Pirates had hosted a dinner
for the ground-breaking OWLs, the Older Wiser Lesbians. This week,
they've flown the coop and high-tailed it to Aras an Uchtarain, the
official residence of the Irish president, where they met President
Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina. By the look of it, it was great craic!

Dinner with OWLs

The Polranny Pirates were delighted to host a dinner for the OWLs, the
Older Wiser Lesbians, an Irish group that was founded by long-time
Pirate friend Maureen Ahearne. A good time was had by all!
