I like the Hearse and Tanker. Good name for a Pub that. :D

Blow up Dolls with a couple of token "Brown" ones thrown in though? The local Sex Shop did well out of purchases hahaha! :D
They could have used Papier mache or something instead! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The flash mobe video was shown on every News programme here, and on every Qantas and Virgin Blue flight. And, it is very interesting that the gist of the report on each of the channels was that in the middle of the worlds turmoil and bad news it takes the Irish to cheer us up.
Fantastic marketing too.

Great photos lads and belated greetings from me too. I was in Queenstown in a pub called Pog Mahone,s on Paddys nighty. No, not in Cork, somewhere in the region of 12,000 miles from there in New Zealand. :) Home in a week and quite a few photos to be uploaded. 8-)

No parades here to the best of my knowledge but all the bars were jammed and people drinking like there was no tomorrow. Nearly everyone wore green and a lot of Irish youngsters live and work in Queenstown. Because most of the bars in Christchurch are closed due to the earthquakes, the 3 bars on the outskirts are doing a roaring trade and Paddys night was a real bonanza for them. A lad we know from Ballinteer runs one of them and he told us the punters were 8 deep at the bar for about 6 solid hours!

Thanks denis, its been a fantastic adventure but like all good things ends too quickly. As I write this we have 4 more hours in our daughters and then our marathon journey home begins. A 3 hour, 14 hour and 7 hour flight awaits us . Looking forward to putting up the photos........when I recover! :roll: :)
