    There seems to be a few different routes, the quickest at about four hours. I guess the roads would not be as good as say Cork to Dublin so it may be slow.

    I was planning to stay over on Friday night but have discovered today that the site opens at 10am so driving Saturday would not be as bad as I thought.

    I would still stay over Friday if anyone else is staying, so we can meet up for a drink and talk shop.

    I have spoken to one of the staff in the visitor centre and he said they have no problem with a gang of photographers arriving with their big cameras and tripods so long as we don't obstruct any other visitors. He also said we would need permission from the OPW if we wanted to distribute or sell any images.

    Thanks for checking all that out Peter! It never even struck me to ring.. I'm glad someone has their head screwed on right and is thinking ahead!
    I hope to get down on Friday night too, but won't know til a little closer to the date..

    I'm gonna come up Friday and stay somewhere nearby-ish, 'cos there is no way the bus will get me there on Saturday morning. I will say I'm getting very good at 1st gear, 2nd gear, and reverse ... but still a bit nervous in 3rd gear. Oh... and I can go around the roundabout in the correct direction! There's hope for me yet... It's a good thing it takes 10 months to get a test date...

    :-)

    So we have just over a week to go to Clonmacnoise and I'm really looking forward to it.

    The site opens at 10am so lets meet up a little before that and we can make our introductions.

    How do you all feel about having some lunch together in one of the nearby towns? There is a cafe in the visitor centre but it sounds limited with only soup, sandwiches and quiche etc. If we leave the site for lunch and want to go back, there is no problem once we keep our entrance tickets.

    Tripods are allowed as long as we don't obstruct other visitors.

    So get your gear ready and stock up on your favourite films.

    Sounds great to me. We can check out the cafe when we are down there and if the menu isn't great we can go to Heineys pub in Ferbane which isn't very far away.

    Sounds good to me too, I've decided to come down Saturday morning but will get there early enough to meet up with everyone beforehand.
    Lunch off site sounds like a good idea too, I'll fall in with what everyone else decides..
    Looking forward to it now too
