    Western Ireland Anyone? -July 2007

    I've been given the opportunity to lead a tour in Western Ireland this summer and am jumping at the chance. The group size is limited to 10 and I figured I would post the offering here first.

    Details are currently being negotiated as to how and where the days will be scheduled, but the dates are set.... July 7 - 17, 2007 for those departing from the states, the 8-17th for those coming from other parts of the world. You will be responsible for travel to and from Shannon Airport in Ireland.

    All expenses for lodging, transportation and meals other than lunches will be included in the cost of the trip. Price will be based upon double occupancy although there are private rooms available at a surcharge.

    Although there will be talks, discussion of work and some demonstrations, it will be primarily a shooting excursion and it is safe to assume there will be much time spent on scouting and shooting throughout your stay. We will be visiting during a time of long days and wonderful extended twilight and I plan to make use of every minute. Of course, there will also be some fine pubs and music for those who are so inclined. This should prove to be a great and memorable time and I expect it might fill quickly.

    As I said, information and details are still being worked-out, but you can sign-up for news and more information HERE. You can also assure yourself a place by registering now without cost or commitment HERE. All space will be offered on a first come basis.

    Thanks!

    Bill

    Sorry not to answer sooner! Pricing for the trip has been set at 2695.00 US and includes all stated in the previous post. There are already 4 spaces reserved and the general announcement will be going out to my subs list this weekend.

    Fintan... Yes, mention it if you would. I appreciate this. Even if they don't go, it might be nice to have a pub meet if there is the opportunity. Thanks for the interest!

    No problem.

    Is your schedule very tight, would you consider doing a talk for a photography society?

    BTW If you need info on film etc drop me a line.

    Auuugh! I would love to go but finances/school do not permit... I love Connemara/Western Ireland and hope to go back again someday.

    Honored you'd ask... I'm really not sure on the schedule yet, but I would be happy to if there is the time. I'm already booked up to the time I leave for the tour, but perhaps I can add a day or so at the end. I'll know more as details are confirmed.

    Thanks!

    Too bad, my mom is still working that week, so my dad can't go. We've decided to send him off to Ireland anyway, later, with my brother to carry the tripod. Thanks for the great opportunity, though! He would have loved that.
