From Dublin Ireland, a blog on Life, the Universe, and Everything ... perhaps a little short of 42 !

The M50 is a Motorway (yeah right) and partial ring road around Dublin. It feels like shortly after we finished building the dreaded thing, it became a construction site again and that we will never see the end of the upgrades. That alone causes chaos on an average working day, now add rain, not ordinary rain but relentless Irish rain.

Tom Waits live @ The Ratcellar, The Phoenix Park, Dublin Wednesday 30th, Thursday 31st and Friday 1st August. ok, ok, I went to all three concerts.

So, today I had a business meeting in Cork city which is approximately 250 kilometres, and on a good day three and a half hours, from Dublin .... on a bad day, four to five hours. So I thought, "why not use the train"? Two hours and forty minutes from Dublin Hueston to Cork City by rail, an opportunity to sit back and get work done instead of being stuck in traffic for hours. Another important consideration, using the train is an opportunity to reduce my carbon footprint.

This morning dawned bright and sunny, unfortunately the good cheer was not destined to last and my morning descended sharply into depression along with the rest of the country.
